Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility Skills Certification

Transforming our organizations to be sustainable is all about organizational change and organizational learning.  We cannot afford the risk of  harming our organizations as we make these changes.  We need to be credible.  We need to get it right the GreenTeamUniversityfirst time.

Skills certification is crucial in the Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility sector where green-washing makes it difficult to separate the self-proclaimed experts from the real ones. It demonstrates an individual's professionalism, commitment to the field, and desire to remain on top of current practices. It is also a measure of a professional's competencies against verified standards, which set them apart from others in the industry.

The Sustainability Learning Centre (SLC) is working with a group of credible sustainability and corporate social responsibility  training organizations to create a standard Body of Knowledge and criteria against which to certify the skills, knowledge and abilities of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility Professionals.
