Sustainability Measurement

Topic Sustainability

Online | Face-to-face


This course aims to help organisations understand what responsible sustainability measurement is and what tools are available to evidence the impact of measures taken.

Sustainability reporting has almost tripled in just a few years as responsible production and use of materials and products has become a fundamental expectation of businesses with the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognising that businesses and individuals have to change how materials and nature are used in order to protect current and future generations (SDG12).

Process, production and chemical engineers have a critical role in ensuring sustainability measurement and reporting is fit for purpose and transparent for their organisation.
