Prepare for the future
The Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Certificate programme targets women directors and executives looking to develop their understanding of ESG issues and concepts, equipping them with the tools required to drive ESG agendas in their respective organisations. This expert-led curriculum incorporates ESG theoretical frameworks and trends, situating them within a global context, with practical inputs intended to support executives as they review their roles in driving the ESG agenda.
Through TBrA's ESG certification program, I was exposed to practical approaches that organisations like mine have taken to adopt and implement sustainability within their space. I better understand how to focus on what matters to my business while successfully pushing the ESG agenda and monitoring our progress as we grow. I especially loved the depth of the training content, the supporting resources shared and the very experienced facilitators. I would recommend the programme to any female leader considering it
The ESG Certificate Programme gave me a deeper insight into the ESG topic and how boards can introduce it to the agenda. I have learnt that boards should be concerned not only about having an ESG strategy but should measure the impact of their initiatives. I loved the depth of the programme content and the knowledge of the facilitators who not only taught theory but also shared live experiences and very practical examples
The programme provided me with the right frameworks to assess and try to measure our organisation's ESG obligations and risks to future business sustainability. The reading materials provided for this course were great. The facilitators provided me with enough information and supporting materials to help me prepare our organisation for ESG
