Knowledge for Growth

Want to improve your ESG? Do you lack the inhouse expertise in your company to implement new political regulations, such as the CSRD (CSR) or the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act? Are your stakeholders and customers demanding more and more climate protection? Or do you want to take responsibility for the environment and establish yourself as a pioneer in the field of sustainability in new markets?

Then let us help get your employees ready in all the essential sustainability topics, or train them in our certificate course to become internal sustainability managers.

Our mission

We decided to do things differently – but above all to do them better. The learning content, the technology, the cooperation. The result is a learning experience platform that simplifies your company’s sustainability management.

Wherever your company is on the journey of sustainability transformation, engaging and training your employees is a must. With our certified training courses, your employees and managers will gain the factual knowledge to get your company ready for the future and learn how to integrate sustainability management into existing company processes.

Overcoming challenges from politics and business

We offer sustainability training programs that inspire, empower and impart essential knowledge to your employees. This gives your company important expertise and the tools to address challenges of new political regulations, such as implementing CSR, to combine sustainable development and corporate goals while meeting the demands of markets and stakeholders.

Practical and university-level learning

We empower your employees to master the challenges of the sustainability transformation, to implement regulations such as the CSR or LkSG (Supply Chain Due Diligence Act) and requirements of stakeholders and customers and to master communication with the outside world.

Our continued training in the form of online courses and master classes with various modules is brought to you by leading experts and based on the academic principles of the IU International University of Applied Sciences.

Our nano degree can be accepted as part of a subsequent master’s degree program at IU to an extent of 5 ECTS credits. The learning content is based on the academic principles of the IU.
