Sustainability Transformation through Green Compass

Training Course

Training Course

Sustainability transformations can increase efficiency while minimising environmental impact. However, this can be difficult to achieve if you lack familiarity with sustainability concepts, are unclear how to get started or lack a systematic approach to identify opportunities and high-impact initiatives.

With increasing emphasis on corporate environmental sustainability globally and locally, more companies want to know how they can become more environmentally sustainable. However, there may be a lack of knowledge internally on what needs to be done. Many courses focus on theory with little time spent on helping you apply the knowledge to your workplace.

On this course you will learn about corporate environmental sustainability and create a high-level, strategic plan to become more environmentally sustainable. You will gain an overview of environmental sustainability management trends and implement the knowledge gained in a corporate context.

In this 16-hour course you will create a proposal of strategic actions for improving your organisation’s environmental sustainability. You are encouraged to use actual data collated from the relevant personnel in your company and to present the high-level action plan to your company’s upper management in the final session of the workshop.

TÜV SÜD additionally offers the opportunity to deliver this training as a dedicated in-house course, delivered solely to your organisation to meet your needs and requirements. To receive a quote and find out more information, please contact us at [email protected]

Green Compass can be used by companies at any stage of their environmental sustainability transformation journey, from companies that are just starting out to experienced ones.

Preferably, this team would consist of the Operations Manager/Strategic Program Manager (PMO), Sustainability Manager, Facility Manager/Engineer, Product Development Manager and/or Procurement Manager, to ensure a good breadth of company knowledge in the room for an effective brainstorming session.
