Sustainability and Digital Innovation, the Next Business Shapers

Leveraging the digital, delivering the sustainable

As your customers look to decrease their carbon footprints, they demand sustainable products and solutions. Companies who answer this demand not only open the door to new opportunities, but also future proof their competitiveness. 

Our 'Sustainability and Digital Innovation, the Next Business Shapers' course shows you how to leverage digital innovation to meet, and even exceed, your customers’ sustainable expectations.

What you will gain

Developed in partnership with Sweden’s KTH Executive School, which specialises in helping leaders manage disruptive business landscapes, this short executive course provides you with the tools you need to drive sustainable innovation across your business. It starts with a focus on the fundamentals, addressing how companies can use digital technologies to support sustainable development, both in business and in society. We then take a deep dive into specific, digitally enabled, sustainable solutions, including virtual manufacturing, platforms, and micro-factories.

The course uses a combination of live training, group activities, and hands-on exercises to cover an array of topics, including:

  • Sustainable development and business
  • Integrating sustainability into business management
  • Aligning sustainability into industrial digitalisation
  • Sustainable development as a source of innovation
  • The tools for sustainable digital business models and smart services

To enhance the learning experience, the course includes an opportunity to apply your new skills and knowledge towards solving real-world problems at various multinational companies.

Your transformation

You will leave the training having a comprehensive understanding of how you can use technology to deliver the sustainable solutions that will define our future.
