Awareness Within the Ranks

Modules like this are important. Even as the global conversation about sustainability grows and business leaders become aware of the problems caused by climate change, “they still have little to no awareness of the consequences of their decisions,” Arijit Chatterjee, Associate professor of the Management Department at ESSEC states. 

“There is a need to make them more aware of how business decisions can increase global warming and deplete non-renewable resources,” he asserts.

With this in mind, Chatterjee designed the module to ensure the participants gain a thorough understanding of what sustainability is, the consequences of everyday decisions, and the difference between short-term value capture and long-term value creation.

Noting that businesses often lack the managerial expertise to implement sustainability policies successfully, he selected case studies on big corporations such as Nike and Unilever and anecdotes from small firms. 

For a more diverse view, Chatterjee invited guest speakers from the sustainability field to share their learnings. Here, participants further explored their own discovery with real-world experiences. 

Debates were encouraged, and participants were urged to reflect on their own goals, so they leave with facts and the conviction to address complex problems with both confidence and compassion.
