A 2-day course, to help you manage Sustainability within your organisation in a systematic way, and handle required change within your organisation to be an effective Sustainability Manager and achieve Excellence in managing Sustainability

The course focuses on understanding what Sustainability is and present recent World and Local trends. Participants will learn how to view Sustainability, as a way of doing business in a sustainable way, rather than a predefined set of independent programs or a PR activity.

Effective handling of Sustainability, especially in cases of scarce resources, is facilitated by modern management practices and techniques.

Participants will be required to prepare for the training by reviewing and working on a practical Case Study, which will take from 2-6 hours based on the following material:
  • SMT Case Study
  • SMT Workbook Homework
  • The EFQM Sustainability Framework
  • Access to an online Sustainability Assessment Tool

Introduction & background : although there are clear benefits for companies applying Sustainability practices (mainly in five areas), the driver fundamentally has to remain the mindset that “it is the right thing to do”, with positive side-effects.

Development & management : Effective handling of Sustainability, especially in cases of scarce resources, is facilitated by modern management practices. To support this proposition, various management tools and examples will be presented, structured around the 4 P model of Change.

Communication & Reporting : Results of Sustainability should and can be practical, measurable and non-wishful. Communication examples of activities will be presented from various companies around the world.

Review & Assessment


During the course you will receive access to an on-line assessment tool structured around 7 areas (Management, Suppliers, Customers, Environment, Employees, Owners, Community) with a total of 400 questions, in order to develop a long term 3 year Sustainability action plan.
