Sustainability in Business

Dr Jasmina Kuka

Is the industry you are working in progressive and evolving? Is your company strategy aligned with ESG related values? Are those running the company committed to long term positive impact for both shareholders and stakeholders?


Join Dr. Jasmina Kuka in this 1-day programme that is intended to provide boards with a greater understanding on sustainable practices and the importance of the integration of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into investment processes and decisionmaking of their businesses. With increasing stakeholder expectations of a company’s ESG performance, addressing ESG issues is no longer something that can be done at every fifth board meeting or within a standard annual report that merely ticks the box. Directors are expected to have sufficient knowledge to evaluate the potential impact, risks and opportunities that arise from these ESG factors and tackle questions about sustainability in a new and urgent manner.

Learning Outcomes

  • Develop an understanding on how to increase productivity and employees’ engagements
  • Discuss risk management improvements
  • Identify how to unlock potentials for attracting Socially Responsible and/or Sustainable Investments
  • Explain how to help retain and attract new partners
  • Define reputation building
