Sustainability Professionals Programme 2018

Career opportunities in sustainability looks set to grow, amid a growing push for sustainable business practices locally and globally.

In Singapore, the movement towards sustainability has begun accelerating on several fronts –from smart logistics and master planning, to the increase in demand for smart and green buildings.

Organisations are also embracing and integrating sustainability in their operations to be in line with the Singapore Exchange’s ‘comply or explain’ ruling, or to mitigate the impact of the upcoming carbon tax.

Globally, businesses are recognising the opportunities and benefits from adopting corporate sustainability.

Equip yourself with the right skills to take advantage of career opportunities in the green sector through the Sustainability Professionals Programme – jointly organised by Global Compact Network Singapore (GCNS) and the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC).

The Sustainability Professionals Programme is a 10-day programme and held over five months. As a participant, you will:

  • Broaden and deepen your understanding of key corporate sustainability concepts and frameworks
  • Acquire skills to write your sustainability reports and calculate your organisation’s carbon footprint
  • Experience through site visits how sustainability is integrated into business operations at leading organisations
  • Network with like-minded individuals from the sustainability community

Singaporeans and Permanent Residents are eligible for e2i Funding*. *Terms and conditions apply.
