The successful March 2020 Atlanta training focused on ESGs and Circular Economy. Atlanta is a gathering place for corporations throughout the US and the world, given it is a critical transportation hub. The training included a majority of participants from Georgia, Maryland, Florida and Texas.
CSE is preparing now for its upcoming trainings throughout US and Canada. As always, CSE will tailor the training to the unique needs of this region.
A good portion of the Atlanta training focused on ESGs and Circular Economy, important considerations for participants from Rheem, EPCOR, Delta, WestRock and Wells Fargo. Sustainable management of ESGs and Circular Economy makes a significant impact in promoting human rights, fair labor practices, environmental progress and anti-corruption policies. Given Atlanta’s national and international reach, highlighting Circular Economy issues made sense.
FT 500 participants were particularly sensitive to the implications of sustainability rankings to investors. ESG criteria (environment, social, governance) are part of due diligence for trillions of investment dollars.
Another focus, praised as one of the key take-aways by participants, was Materiality. When allocating resources, smaller and newer companies appreciate knowing how to address stakeholder concerns when designing a sustainability strategy and developing a sustainability report.
ESGs and Circular Economy are important components of the Center for Sustainability and Excellence Certified Sustainability Practitioner training which will be presented in all our upcoming US and Canada trainings.
CSE does not pick focus topics arbitrarily, such as the request for extra SROI information in the 2019 Toronto training, or the Silicon Valley Sustainability Trends for the San Francisco 2019 training or the Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability focus for the Miami 2020 training. We listen to participants from past trainings and to participants enrolled for future trainings. Want to inform the focus for any one of our future trainings?
