In recent years, after going through one of the biggest economic and financial crises in recent history, we have witnessed a progressive loss of trust and credibility of society in institutions. Many strive to blame the markets or companies for the situation, but in reality, behind the institutions, markets and companies, there are only people.
It is often heard that globalisation is a modern concept, with consequences, if not negative, at least of dubious goodness. However, few realise that what is really new is the liquid environment surrounding what is now considered the third period of globalisation in history. Globalisation 3.0 is characterised by the globalisation of the individual and of operations which, together with the acceleration of communications and the flourishing of social networks, has volatilised corporate immunity to boycotts and public pressure.
In this new volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment, business managers need to take into account economic, social and environmental factors to ensure business sustainability and to respond to the demands of a wider, informed and co-ordinated society.
Nowadays, the management of concepts such as non-financial risk management, the creation of shared value, stakeholder management, sustainable technological innovation, circular economy, ESG reporting, Sustainable Development Goals or the generation of positive impact are essential to create competitive business models.
The Business Sustainability and SDGs course is aimed at people in executive roles and business leaders with strategic functions in an organisation, either within or outside the area of sustainability, who wish to deepen their understanding of all the concepts related to sustainable development and innovation in this area.
