About this Module: Strategic Sustainability Communication

Sustainability is no longer "nice to have" but part of a company's core business operations and a driver of customer, employer and investor loyalty. Sustainability communication plays an important role to demonstrate company's commitment to truthfully and authentically disclose its sustainability ambitions, strategy, goals, challenges and efforts. Effective sustainability communication strengthens a company's transparency, authenticity, and accountability increasing employee satisfaction, attracting customers and investors, and engaging stakeholders in sustainable development.

In Module 4 of the Sustainability Management Training Series we will take a closer look into strategic sustainability communication as the means to demonstrate legal compliance (part 1) and to effectively engage with important stakeholders to showcase an organisation's progress on sustainability commitments (part 2). We will complete the module with a look into greenwashing laws and regulations around the globe and the increasing regulatory effort to crack down on misleading sustainability claims (part 3).
