A View into the Program: Strategic Sustainability for Business
– Integrating Sustainability into Your Business Strategy
The playbook for corporate sustainable business is being re-written. Organizations are seeking the latest research, tools, and industry case studies from expert practitioners in order to craft their 21st century strategies. How is your company aligning its purpose to the UN Sustainability Goals, designing new business models and organizing for success?
Join us for a thought-provoking discussion with program faculty, Fabian Sepulveda and Robert Strand as they discuss sustainability as a strategic competitive advantage and provide a glimpse into the topics taught and frameworks applied in Strategic Sustainability for Business, a four-day executive education program co-created by Aalto University Executive Education and UC Berkeley Executive Education.
The webinar is free of charge and will be in English. We will share the webinar recording after the event with all registrees.
