The Professional and Corporate Education program at Stetson University has recently announced the launch of a Sustainability Series that will provide business leaders with practical guidance on developing and implementing a viable business sustainability plan. The six-part series will begin on Tuesday, May 11 and continue through Thursday, May 27. Classes will be offered via Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5-7 p.m.
“Sustainability is necessary for preserving the planet and its resources,” said Bud Hanson, MBA, executive director of PaCE. “Companies may not know how to start integrating sustainability into their business operations. This course will provide participants with practical applications and tangible processes on sustainability.”
The course includes an overview of trends in corporate sustainability, guidelines for creating a meaningful strategy and feasible tips for building a conservation culture within an organization. Additional topics include brand purpose, sustainability certifications, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, brand ecosystem engagement, impact reporting and the importance of storytelling.
Throughout the series, guest speakers will be discussing sustainability practices at their organizations. Lecturers include Stetson University President Christopher F. Roellke, PhD, Jason Evans, PhD, executive director of Stetson’s Institute for Water and Environmental Resilience (IWER), and representatives from Costa Sunglasses and Nuun. Spokespersons from 1% for the Planet and the 5 Gyres Institute will talk about the role cause partnerships play in advancing the shared goals of environmental and social stewardship.
