Sustainability presents a fundamental challenge to businesses: either innovate new products and operating models that fit the constraints of our modern world, or continue business as usual and fall behind. There is no more middle ground for global business.
This is the first program of its kind to bring together science, leadership, business strategy, and innovation to help sustainability professionals succeed as strategic partners in their organizations.
The Yale Corporate Sustainability Accelerator is designed to equip participants with the knowledge, tools, and perspective to rise to this challenge and lead their organizations at the frontier of sustainability. Using frameworks developed by world-class Yale faculty working at the interface of business, society and environmental science, this course will help organizations leverage sustainability to produce business value. Yale faculty and researchers will evaluate each organization’s sustainability plan on multiple criteria. Through one-on-one review sessions and peer interactions, each participant will learn where their gaps and opportunities lie and what to do next.
