Drive Sustainable Growth with Purpose and Impact

Globally, the adverse effects of climate change on the environment and society have caused companies to come under increasing pressure from various stakeholders, such as governments, regulators and activist groups, to adopt more sustainable and socially responsible business practices.

Committed to playing its part towards the world’s climate action and sustainability goals, the Singapore government has launched the Singapore Green Plan 2030 to build a green economy and a sustainable future. To increase corporate accountability, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) will also require companies to provide various climate-related disclosures from FY 2022.

While more and more companies are recognising the necessity and benefits of integrating sustainability into their corporate strategy and practices, not many have the knowledge and skills to get started.

To bridge this gap, the Executive Certificate in Corporate and Environmental Sustainability offered by Nanyang Business School (NBS), aims to provide business leaders and professionals with a broad   understanding of the critical issues, strategies, innovations, technologies, reporting requirements as well as practical frameworks and toolkits so that they can lead sustainability initiatives in their organisations.
