This program, starting in November, gives companies a platform to assess their value chain and ensure that their business models have sustainability at the core. 

Aalto University's focused studies on complex sustainability challenges like climate change, loss of biodiversity, and global inequality call for ground-breaking and societally impactful research.  Sustainability is a core value of UC Berkeley, and the University has been named as one of the greenest in the world. UC Berkeley intends to be a leader in environmental issues and to promote action and awareness through education and research initiatives.

Aalto PRO has had a Finnish training program Competitive Advantage from CSR for years, which enables the participants to turn the responsible business into a strategic tool for improving your company's competitive edge. One of the participants is Secretary General of Global Compact Finland, Lenita Toivakka. The UN Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate social responsibility initiative.
