Take a moment and listen to Annelie as she talks about how the course benefited her and her company.
“This course has really given me practical steps! Because there is so much talk about sustainability and it is kind of easy to get lost and not really know how to move forward and do some real work in the company you are in. So, I joined this course and it is really good in describing and breaking down in real work, what to do to move forward, to fulfill the Sustainable Development Goals, or working with standards like ISO26000, and that has been very very helpful.
It is also great to get the network to talk and discuss these questions with.
And, I also got a new position and became Head of Sustainability in the company!”
Two tips Annelie has for companies or professionals who want to start their sustainability journey are:
💡 Do this course – because I think it is good to have the support, to do a course, to know that you do the right thing and not get lost along the way.
💡 And, the importance of getting colleagues and management involved.
