ESG is Redefining Global Standards

As a leader in ESG, you need to anticipate investors’ questions before they are asked, manage the associated risks and implement an appropriate ESG framework that will operate across the organisation.

The wait and see approach won’t work as investors are already favouring businesses with strong ESG credentials.

Businesses are at Risk
Consumers want to engage with businesses that are sustainable, responsible and ethical.

Shareholder Activism is on the Rise
The growing trend of environmentally and socially focused resolutions is putting pressure on boardrooms.

Bring a Unique Insight to ESG

Informed leaders recognize the opportunities that ESG presents. Take advantage of these opportunities to effect change. Your purpose as a leader is no longer seen as driving financial gain for your company’s shareholders. It is also about providing value to customers, investing in people, treating suppliers fairly, and giving back to the communities in which your company operates.

This Diploma in ESG will set you apart as a leader. You will understand the complexities of this emerging space and bring a unique perspective on what is needed to succeed within it.
