Online Executive Development Programme (EDP) – Climate Change for Organisation Management

Co-organisers:

This certificate programme is jointly organized by National University of Singapore and Carbon Care Asia Limited.

Introduction

Businesses understand the problems and issues caused by climate change. While sustainable finance is featured prominently as a tool to influence organisations to adopt green practices, its application is not as obvious and easy to grasp.

Getting prepared to become a climate-ready corporation is a long-term, high priority objective for many industry frontrunners. This specially-curated online programme is designed to help business leaders, corporate executives and sustainability practitioners to develop robust climate leadership knowledge and skills.

Participants will:

  • Deepen their knowledge and understanding of climate change;
  • Develop climate-competent leadership capabilities;
  • Learn sustainability strategies and priority issues for different industry sectors; and
  • Build practical climate-readiness, carbon management and green finance skills.

The course is taught by Mr John Sayer, Director, Carbon Care Asia and Associate Professor Lawrence Loh, Director, Centre for Governance and Sustainability of NUS Business School.
