When it comes to establishing sustainability or social responsibility, in the medium term many tasks can only be accomplished if the company has the necessary competencies. Those who are in charge need to be aware of the main social issues, be able to conduct stakeholder management, have the ability to develop sustainability strategies, design performance indicator systems, and know the current standards of sustainability reporting. All these competencies can be acquired by completing a CAS (Certificate of Advanced Studies) in Corporate Responsibility.
The online course is dedicated to the many connections between business and human rights in a globalized world. Participants will learn how companies can become more aware of the human rights risks of their business activities. Once they have identified these risks, they can manage and improve their influence using various approaches and instruments. The course is being offered on the online learning platform edX and starts on 1 March 2021.
