Decarbonisation & sustainability management

The EU “Green Deal” with the goal of climate neutrality now obligates companies: Industrial companies in particular are required to expand their measures for more sustainability, to balance them and to include other fields of action for climate neutrality (e.g., supply chains) in addition to the previous focus on energy.

In this university course comprising 10 units, you will acquire basic know-how on environmental and sustainability management systems, sustainability reporting and greenhouse gas balancing, backcasting and roadmapping with the goal of climate neutrality, as well as carbon management with a special focus on the decarbonisation of supply chains.

This course is part of the EMBA Green and Digital Transition and is listed there under the module name "Sustainability Management, -systems" in the curriculum. If the course is completed, it can be credited to the EMBA Green and Digital Transition.
