This training provides an overview of the importance of Sustainability Reporting, providing insight into why it is being pursued and reported by companies world wide, why it should be included in engineering consulting, and how CESA Members should produce Sustainability reports.

 

4.       OBJECTIVES OF THE TRAINING

 

The training will provide insight to the term and concept of sustainability and sustainability reporting, and how CESA members should report on sustainability matters in the industry.

 

Sustainability leads companies to consider and manage their impacts and resources. This allows companies to re-think their operations, and to reevaluate elements of their business model, in order to, not only become a more sustainable business, but to provide more sustainable services and products whilst considering social and environmental impacts of their operations.

 

Sustainability reporting in the engineering industry is evolving.  Consulting Engineers need to be aware of what this is, and how it is, and should be influencing the way business is done.
