Your outlook

Your sustainable future

You become a specialist in sustainability and set up your organization for a sustainable future.

In the future, companies will have to address the issue of sustaina- bility in a credible manner in order to secure their competitive advantage and assume responsibility for a world worth living in. Companies of all sizes and industries will need experts who develop, plan, implement and report on strategies to achieve sus- tainability goals.

You will become familiar with the legal requirements and societal expectations for the sustainability of companies and organisations in the private, public and non-profit sectors. To meet these, you will formulate realistic goals, set focal points, and agree on priorities. You will then determine effective measures in sustainability management, which you will implement in practice. You com- municate the achieved sustainability performance internally and externally.
