Sustainable managers drive sustainable business efforts at their organizations. These professionals are long-term thinkers, agents of change, and ambassadors with vision. Sustainable business leaders use a range of knowledge and abilities to do their jobs.
First and foremost, they must be able to solve complex business problems, such as sustainable development, by applying systems thinking—or, analysing whole systems by looking at how component parts of the system interact with each other. They also must understand basic economics, marketing, accounting, and law as well as how to assess and interpret social, scientific, and business-related information. Additionally, sustainable managers must be effective communicators and leaders, because they may lead a team; engage with varied departments, sites, and stakeholders; and present to diverse audiences.
Business sustainability management course is cantered on the notion that sustainability is integral to ensuring businesses can continue to operate on a planet with finite resources and deliver benefits to both shareholders and society.
