Eco-Sustainability, including CSR (Corporate and Social Responsibility) and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) are standards that organizations, all over the globe, can no longer ignore. At the same time, opportunities in creating value out of the demand for eco-sustainable solutions need to be correctly appraised and explored, for they will define the future of any business in the next 20 years.

Carbon Credits, ESG and the Epiconomy - Immersion

Immersive training about the Epiconomy

This training is for participants who want to immerse themselves in the principles and workings of the Epiconomy (going beyond the Circular Economy). With little or no prior experience in the area, in this immersive course, you will learn the ropes of planning, developing, and implementing a successful strategy in terms of eco-sustainability, ESG, green business models, ZerO2Nature projects, and/or other clean development/climate mitigation mechanisms.

Participating in Carbon Credits, ESG and the Epiconomy - Immersion you will access the skills necessary for developing, positioning, and implementing knowledge on eco-sustainability and communicate this correctly with all the relevant internal and external stakeholders of your business. This course will lead to a clear understanding of eco-sustainability concerning the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the successful management of green business models, the meticulous reporting and assessment of green initiatives, a very consistent approach regarding climate change, and all initiatives regarding emissions, including reductions of carbon and pollution.
