Leading the way - Sustainability in Action masterclass

Are you looking for practical guidance to help you make your business more sustainable?

The Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton BN1 1YD

The University of Brighton’s ’s Sustainability in Action masterclass
gives practical guidance to help you make your business more sustainable, exploring leadership skills to meet the challenges of a changing world. We’ll show you how to manage important social and environmental issues, demystifying the corporate jargon and giving you some great ideas for your business.

We cover the range of sustainability principles, exploring business challenges and resilience in the face of social, environmental and economic risks and opportunities; and bring in current examples of good (and not so good) practice.

We'll work together through a structured programme, including exercises and discussion, with simple tools designed to help you prioritise, take action and communicate your progress. We offer you the opportunity to review your action plan in person with the tutor after the course.

So if you are looking to build your skills as a business leader then sign up!

Course overview
The half day masterclass will cover:
  • Why is sustainability important? How to develop a compelling business case and deliverable action plan for sustainability
  • ​Commercial drivers: business benefits, legal and policy framework, current trends and best practice in sustainability, the value of ​formally certified or informal management systems
  • How to get the best results: systems vs initiatives, focus and prioritisation, action planning, engaging stakeholders and employees in your sustainability journey
  • Drafting a communications strategy that meets the needs of your internal and external stakeholders, building an authentic narrative to strengthen your reputation as a responsible business.
