OntarioLearn description: Learn how to position sustainability as a driver of business success and innovation, not as a threat to it. Examine sustainability and its impact on today's business model and explore the three dimensions of sustainability (environmental, social and economic) to learn how to select sustainability-related labels and metaphors that are most appropriate for specific organizations. Identify critical sustainability issues for businesses and their associated risks and opportunities, and hear from experts who have put sustainability into practice within organizations across Canada and internationally. After reviewing best environmental and social practices, you will use sustainability business case / ROI tools to frame your “ask” to ensure that executives allocate sufficient resources for a typical sustainability project.
