  Environmental Sustainability Leadership

Environmental Sustainability Leadership

Program Overview
Environmental sustainability provides compelling opportunities for strengthening your brand, reducing costs, decreasing risk, and improving your bottom line.  And yet many organizations still approach “going green” as nothing more than costly compliance with existing environmental law, with perhaps a nod to values of sustainability as part of a compartmentalized social responsibility commitment. However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that companies that fail to integrate sustainability into their core strategies will fail to maintain their competitiveness over time.

Environmental Sustainability Leadership will help business executives to move beyond vague and general views of sustainability toward one that includes rigorous methods for bringing significant long-term value to the organization and its investors in a measurable manner.

Whether you are new to sustainable business practices or have experience implementing and evolving sustainability strategies, this program is designed to enhance your ability to use sustainability for competitive advantage, to actively plan for future risks and opportunities, and to make a stronger case for sustainability initiatives to senior management and key stakeholders. The program uses innovative approaches to environmental sustainability developed by Wharton faculty in the disciplines of management, marketing, finance, law, operations and informational sciences, and professional ethics.

Environmental Sustainability Leadership is an offering in a business sustainability series that has been developed by Wharton Executive Education in conjunction with the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL) and its supporting companies.
