With the news that Silicon Valley is seriously lagging behind in its sustainability efforts, the need for easily accessible sustainability training is all the more prescient.
The past few decades saw a steady increase in the number of corporate sustainability roles. A decade ago, the role of Sustainability Manager did not even exist in organizations. Today a company that does not have sustainability at the core of its strategy and operations is at risk of being left behind not only its competitors but also regulators – especially as the amount and stringency of environmental regulation increases.
The next decade will see the integration of sustainability into all departments of an organization – from procurement to operations to sales and marketing. This process has already largely begun and will require a flexible and agile workforce that can keep up with changing sustainability trends, innovation, and regulation.
