The Centre for Sustainability and Excellence by continually displaying its commitment to corporate responsibility delivered for the very first time in Toronto the advanced version of its Certified Sustainability (CSR) Practitioner Training. At this engaging two-day training course twenty participants from a variety of companies interested in sustainability strategies discussed many topics being of key importance in the corporate social responsibility sphere.
By bringing together professionals from different fields, the training provided the platform for in-depth discussions that allowed participants to demystify materiality and increase the transparency and effectiveness of sustainability reporting. “It was great learning more about materiality, as it is something that has not been addressed well in the past,” sustainability coordinator of the Saskatchewan Research Council Amy Derbowka said.
“I like the hands on learning so I appreciated the group discussions. I will definitely apply the learning.”
Participants conducted many in-class group exercises and reviewed case studies, reports and methodologies from other organizations that with an aim to learn how to relate them back to their own organizations and develop comprehensive CSR strategies. Chantell Tunney, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Hamilton said that she found this training “excellent” and “very organized” and the way the methodologies were presented made it “easy to digest.” Tunney concluded by saying:
“Thank you! It was terrific.”
CSE from its end would like to thank all the participants who attended its training in Toronto and encourage more professionals to join one of the upcoming training destinations of its Advanced Certified Sustainability (CSR) Practitioner Training destinations.
