Short course - Environmental and Sustainability Culture for Project Success
This course introduces participants to the role and impact of sustainability culture throughout the project lifecycle.
Participants will explore the three pillars of sustainability and the impact of sustainability and environmental management on project success. The course also allows participants to build an appreciation of environment professionals and their responsibilities for managing safe and sustainable project activities.
A highly interactive two-day course, participants will gain an insight into the role of environmental management and its place within the wider context of achieving sustainability. Participants will explore the social, economic, and environmental impact of projects through a variety of activities and project-based scenarios and gather an awareness of environment and sustainability interdependencies and requirements.
On this course you will...
- Describe sustainability interdependencies and consider these in the project context
- Articulate the importance of culture and leadership to sustainability
- Understand the factors that make up the project environment
- Explain the sources of environmental requirements and how these are met
- Summarise environmental aspects and assessments
- Review project environmental management
What our course participants have to say
I would recommend this course to colleagues and I think this should form the baseline of understanding for people working on projects to be able to consider sustainability as part of whatever role they perform. Having more people sustainably literate will enable the greatest change in culture and innovation with regards to sustainability.
A very enjoyable course with excellent break out discussions and a superb networking opportunity
The course was very well delivered and offered a really good opportunity to lift oneself out of the day to day, to refocus on behaviours/ culture/ leadership and increase awareness on sustainability.
