COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is taught in Swedish.

For small and medium-sized businesses: learn how to develop a sustainable business and how to implement sustainability in your workplace.

Do you want to learn how to use different methods to identify improvement potential for sustainability? Do you know how to smoothly integrate environmental improvement into your daily work? Do you want to learn tools to introduce new ways of working in your organisation and how to engage your employees?

This practical course will give you knowledge on how to support your business to become more sustainable. Today we have less than seven years to meet the 1.5 degree target based on the carbon budget calculated by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. New technologies and new environmental investments are an important part of the societal transformation that is underway.

It is equally important that we change the way we work and behave in our daily lives as well as in the workplace to reduce our environmental impact.
