Training Programs to Support the Development of Sustainable Operations 

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a strategic tool that enables companies to improve their competitiveness and develop their businesses. The key issue is understanding what CSR means and how to demonstrate it. Although compliance with laws and international standards is the starting point in this respect, stakeholders increasingly require that companies fulfill their responsibilities as extensively as possible.

We help you to build socially, ecologically, and economically sustainable businesses. Leading experts from Aalto University and other top universities in the discipline and some of the business world’s key companies are at our disposal. We organized our first environmental training program in 2004, and it is just renewed to cover responsibility more broadly.

Strategic Sustainability for Business

Strengthen the link between sustainability and business strategy within the business environment while valuing an entrepreneurial mindset.

Companies Are Solving Global Challenges

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is also essential from society's point of view. Companies play a key role in meeting global economic and social challenges and solving environmental problems. For example, investing in new, environmentally-friendly technologies is the best way to mitigate and adapt to climate change and scarcity of resources and promote the circular economy. In the best-case scenario, CSR is directly reflected in people's everyday lives and the state of the environment.

Responsible Companies Are Desired Partners

Responsible values make companies reliable and desirable partners. Making choices that build a sustainable future is vital to businesses and society. The earlier the stage at which a business is built on a sustainable basis, the more stable its future will appear.

CSR is integral to the business competencies of a successful company. A socially responsible company works in the most sustainable manner possible and reconciles its goals and expectations with its stakeholders. Regardless of its size and sector, any company can harness corporate social responsibility as a strategic competitive advantage by responding to the challenge of sustainable development. CSR is also part of good leadership.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Begins with Management

CSR concerns the entire organization. It should also be considered in terms of a company's performance and strategy and put into practice in business activities. That is why those managing CSR issues need a strong line of communication with all parts of the company, and senior management must understand the issue's importance.
Instead of corporate social responsibility, we often refer to sustainable development, a broader concept. CSR has traditionally been viewed as addressing social and economic issues and the environment.
