Best Practices in Environmental Management

Course Code: CEPS 1037E

Going green is more than an ethical decision. In many cases, it's a legal obligation. So it's vital that your organisation remains up-to-date and aligned with industry standards and regulations. Yet the speed of change and the complexity of environmental legislation can make that a real challenge. Thankfully, it's a challenge that Fréréric Dufaut will help you overcome.
Frédéric's training will help you identify the best environmental practices for your needs and guide you through appropriate approaches to create buy-in from stakeholders, higher management, employees and suppliers.
