Overview

This course aims to help organisations understand what responsible sustainability measurement is and what tools are available to demonstrate 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.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you will gain an intermediate-level understanding of:

  • sustainability in the chemical and processing industries
  • why responsible sustainability measurement and reporting is important
  • what sustainability measurement and reporting means in practice
  • how the circular economy and sustainability measurement and reporting fits together
  • the tools available to help and how to determine the right ones for your organisation
  • how to avoid claims of greenwashing and be transparent

Who will benefit

Anyone working in the chemical and process industries with responsibility for embedding more sustainable practices and/or reporting on sustainability progress.

Previous delegates said

"Course content, particularly the sections on new and incoming regulations, was excellent. The timing split was also spot on – longer sections on regulation and less time on things less relevant to chemical engineering but important to know about."
