    Sustainability Academy, the digital educational platform created by the Center for Sustainability (CSE), has been recognized for its innovation and impact. It was awarded the prestigious BRONZE award in the Technology for the Common Good / Digital Education & Skills category at the Hellenic Responsible Business Awards 2023.

    The platform, launched in 2018, was designed to provide high-quality certified training exclusively focused on Sustainability and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) issues. Its mission is to equip professionals, companies, and organizations worldwide with targeted and reliable sustainability training.

    Drawing on CSE’s vast experience in Europe, USA, Canada, MENA, and Asia, Sustainability Academy meets the growing demand for specialized sustainability training. It enables learners to choose from a wide range of certified courses delivered in a self-paced recorded mode, allowing flexibility to accommodate personal needs and professional commitments.

    Professionals and companies alike can take advantage of this platform, gaining the knowledge required to stay updated on relevant legislation and ESG standards. By empowering participants to plan and implement actions that reduce their corporate carbon footprint, Sustainability Academy is actively contributing to the global fight against climate change.

    Over the past five years, more than 9,000 individuals from 95 countries, including several FT 500 companies, have become certified through Sustainability Academy. The platform has become a trusted resource, providing highly specialized sustainability training to companies worldwide.

    Looking ahead, the goal is ambitious but essential: to reach 25,000 registrations by 2030. By doing so, Sustainability Academy aims to make a significant contribution to the certification and development of executives, empowering them to support their companies and foster a more sustainable planet.

    In conclusion, Sustainability Academy’s recognition as an award-winning digital platform is a testament to its dedication to spreading knowledge and driving positive change in the realm of sustainability. With its global reach and certified training programs, the platform is poised to play a crucial role in building a sustainable future for all.



    As recently published in 3BL Media, the Sustainability Academy is CSE’s global initiative to offer affordable, specialized, online education in the field of Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility.

    Of particular relevance is the Certificate on Carbon Reduction Strategy.  The IPCC’s latest report finds that if greenhouse gas emissions increase by 1.5C by 2040 (down from the previous fear of 2C), the world can expect inundating coastlines and intensifying droughts and poverty.

    The Sustainability Academy has set the ambitious goal to train 100,000 sustainability professionals by 2020, in time to make a positive impact.  It is designed to help professionals, entrepreneurs and graduates keep up to date with current legislation, global trends and best practices.

    Based on his work with the Sustainability Academy, the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, the largest community foundation in US and globally, honored Nikos Avlonas, president of CSE, as 2018 Practitioner of the Year for Corporate Responsibility, together with Google, Inc., winner of the corporate award.

    Training is critical to corporate and organizational success as detailed in Sustainability Magic Bullet: Invest  in Training!.  Already, more than 5,000 learners from 30 countries and various sectors have taken part in CSE certified trainings. With a critical mass of Sustainability Practitioners, CSE envisions deep change, enabling corporations, municipal and community organizations to apply principles such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    Instilling a common language and understanding helps integrate Sustainability in all aspects of corporate and institutional functions.  Other specialized online programs include:
