Course Content

Certified ESG Officer" Course

Environment, Social & Governance (ESG), a formalised approach to sustainability, has become a game changer for companies. In addition to digitalisation, the implementation of sustainability in business is the dominant topic - from strategic planning to reporting in the annual financial statements.

The certificate course provides you with the necessary tools to optimally and individually manage the topic of ESG in your company and offers you the best opportunities to achieve your professional goals. You will expand your business administration and legal knowledge in the area of corporate sustainability while working. The contents of the course range from the discussion of EU taxonomies, practical application forms of strategic stakeholder management, the recording and assessment of sustainability KPIs to the establishment of ESG advisory boards. Lectures, case studies, exercises and interactive methods will optimally prepare you for the application of the course contents in business practice.

We look forward to welcoming you virtually to the "Certified ESG Officer" course!
