Executive Education

Sustainable Business Strategy


Leaders must move beyond the pursuit of short-term profitability toward long-term sustainability, as an organisation’s long-term success hinges on the integration of sustainability into its strategic planning and decision making process. Therefore, the SCHSBM Executive Education’s Sustainable Business Strategy programme will enable business leaders to engage in proactive and innovative mainstreaming of sustainability within their organisations by helping them to build and embed sustainable business strategies in their organisation’s core business strategies. This programme will examine business strategy frameworks and best practices attuned to the global business world and that are extensible enough to respond to change while still maintaining a long-term vision. Moreover, delegates will learn how to identify measurable benefits as well as long-term risks and opportunities to ensure that their business strategies are resilient and create real value for the organisation. Additionally, Sustainable Business Strategy will explore case study insights on how leading organisations are devising sustainable business strategies that harness new business opportunities and deliver substantial business impacts. Practically, delegates will receive experiential training in the design, execution and measurement of real-world sustainability strategies within their own organisations.

Programme Goals

The goals of the programme are to:
  • Foster a thinking beyond ‘business as usual’.
  • Facilitate delegates’ exploration of the growing business case for sustainable solutions.
  • Empower leaders to use strategic frameworks and sustainable business strategies to embed sustainability in their organisation.
  • Help delegates build a strong vision for economic success and competitive advantage through sustainability.

  • Evaluate the role of sustainability in corporate strategy, organisational culture and operations.
