  • Defining corporate responsibility and sustainability for your company - starting with your mission statements and business drivers, this session will help you define what responsible business practice means for your company, why it is important and how it gives a competitive advantage.
  • Business insight - a frank account by a speaker from a leading company of how they have achieved internal buy-in, and how they manage CR/sustainability through their business, outlining what has and what hasn't worked.
  • Integrated approaches to corporate responsibility - frameworks to conduct your own review of how your company is managing and integrating corporate responsibility, highlight the gaps and develop an action plan.
  • Structure and process - exploring and critiquing a range of governance structures that are used in companies to help embed corporate responsibility.

The course has been designed for people new to corporate responsibility/sustainability, who may be taking this on as a new part of their job, and for those with wider responsibility who want a better understanding of what CR and sustainability mean to their business.
