Introduction to Sustainability-Driven Innovation Management
A win-win situation for everyone
As we are constantly facing a decrease in our resources, sustainability is and should always be on our minds. Many companies see a dilemma between ensuring profit growth on the one hand and sustainability on the other, which does not always have to be the case at all. Research shows that sustainability is a mother lode of organisational and technological innovations that yield both bottom-line and top-line returns. So, what can we do to ensure economic, ecologic and social sustainability for the long run?
In this training course you will be introduced to the key factors of sustainability and also to our Sustainability-Driven Innovation Management Assessment, which allows for a comprehensive analysis on how well sustainability-driven innovation management is positioned in your own company. This tool looks in detail at how well you are currently leveraging economic, ecologic and social sustainability as drivers for innovation, growth and competitiveness.
