For a second consecutive year, CSR HELLAS, in cooperation with the University of Crete and ALBA Business School and with the support of the Centre of Excellence for Sustainability of the American College of Greece, organized a Corporate Sustainability & Responsibility School, in November-December 2020.
The CSR-School focused on providing advanced training regarding the identification of sustainability-related business opportunities and the inclusion of responsibility in the core of one’s business strategy, in order to achieve sustainable value and formulate a more resilient organization.
The training program was envisioned as a journey covering all major identified areas that relate to the responsible management of sustainability. Within 7 weeks, during which over 48 hours of sustainability-related knowledge and management experience were shared, trainees gained an up-to-date overview of major developments around the largest environmental, social and governance challenges affecting businesses nowadays.
During the 12-part Webinar series, participants attended lectures by distinguished academic faculty members, discuss relevant case studies, learned about best practices that had been implemented by experienced senior professionals and exchanged views regarding the incorporation of relevant theory into the CSR initiatives of their own organization.
The thematic areas that were covered in the 12 webinars were the following:
- Setting the frame
- Ethical Leadership
- Sustainable Value Creation
- Responsible Governance
- Sustainable Supply Chains
- CSR & Environment
- CSR & Employees
- CSR & Finance and Banking
- Non-Financial Reporting
- CSR & Capital Markets
- Partnerships for CSR
The programme addressed professionals who wished to gain more in-depth knowledge about corporate sustainability and responsibility, as well as undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students.
