VIP Sustainability training courses SERIES OF WORKSHOPS ON DEVELOPING CSR AND SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY IN DUBAI
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is increasingly on the agenda for many businesses seeking to become prosperous while safeguarding their future. Guiding businesses through this transition is EMG, a leading CSR and sustainability advisory firm, who is holding regular training workshops in Dubai, UAE.
“The sustainability challenges we face today are pressing; but the opportunities they bring to businesses have seldom been so great. Where low-hanging fruit has typically been found in areas of energy reduction, material minimization and other forms of cost efficiencies, EMG asks the question: how does a strategy focused on less help an organization to achieve more…?
Our approach, and one which forms the basis of our training courses, is much more ambitious. We take a strategic view on CSR and sustainability, focused on empowering organizations to generate virtuous cycles of positive financial, social and environmental impact” – Drs Daan Elffers, Founder and CEO of EMG Group.
