Climate change is upon us. Countries and corporations aim to fully decarbonise their activities and operations by the latter half of the century. Achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by mid-century is imperative to ensure that the deadly effects of climate change are mitigated substantially. Apart from climate change, there are also imminent grand challenges for humanity in terms of resource availability and resiliency, food sufficiency, and impact on communities from globalised supply chains.
Corporate sustainability is therefore a prerequisite, as stakeholders and investors want companies to decarbonise their operations and make their global supply chains less resource intensive. How can companies lead and address these challenges strategically?
During this webinar, Prof Viswanathan from Nanyang Business School (NBS) will present a strategic framework for implementing sustainability efforts in organisations.
Alumni in any industry who share an interest in sustainability are encouraged to attend.
This webinar is organised by the NTU Office of Alumni Engagement in partnership with the Nanyang Executive Education.
