Why Enrol For The Circular Economy and Sustainability Strategies Programme?

The over-exploitation of natural resources required to achieve economic growth and development has had a negative impact on the environment while also causing these resources to become scarcer and costlier. So it’s easy to see why the idea of a circular economy that offers new ways to create a more sustainable economic growth model is taking hold across the globe. This programme is designed to help you understand the growing business case for sustainable solutions and learn how to manage and lead a sustainable business by incorporating circular economy principles into your strategies to support sustainable growth.
