The transition to a low-carbon economy is the key environmental issue of our time and involves everyone in the company from Corporate Affairs to Operations, including Finance, IT and Human Resources.
Participants are expected to learn about climate change, society’s use of energy, government policy and targets, current and emerging regulations, and the huge challenge that the transition to a low-carbon economy entails, from a technical, economic and societal point of view. We will then discuss how business can use the principles of sustainable development and point to corporate social responsibility action to address the challenge. Lastly, we’ll look at financial incentives and the business case for implementing the transition as well as different approaches and guidelines available.
The objective of the training is to equip business professionals with the tools and information needed to plan for the transition within their organisations. The training is aimed at professionals from all corporate functions who are interested in an overview of the issues and who want the latest information from a variety of perspectives.
The training will take place on January 26th, 2017 at the offices of the CPEQ. It will be given by Stephanie Hamilton, ing., EP (Sustainability), CSR and Sustainable Development Service Leader at EEM. Register on the CPEQ’s website.
