Igniting Change: A Peek into ESG Manager Course Journey
ESG is the hot topic nowadays, and if you’re wondering where to start, Eco Sentido’s Academy of Sustainability & Innovative has got you covered! We’ve just wrapped up three of our ESG Manager Courses, and what an inspiring journey it has been. Participants from diverse backgrounds have embarked on an adventure, uncovering a new chapter in their sustainability journey, gaining a deeper understanding of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles, and igniting a passion for lasting change.
Guided by experienced trainers, the participants are equipped with essential skills and know-how that are key to excelling in sustainability. Over the past three sessions, participants explored the core ESG concepts, unlocking the power of protecting the environment, transparent governance, and the ins and outs of GHG management. From grasping sustainability’s vital role in businesses to championing ethical choices, these courses laid strong foundations for sustainable practices.
A Sneak Peek into Our Three Courses Adventure:
Siri 1(ESG01) Sustainability and Environment: Under the guidance of Dr. Chen, this module gave participants a firm understanding of true sustainability. Real-world case studies brought concepts to life, and the connection between SDGs and our daily lives and business was explored. Dr. Chen’s objective? To make sustainability accessible and down-to-earth, even more applicable. And that’s exactly what happened, with a special focus on Environmental Themes and insights into Bursa Malaysia’s requirements and essential sustainability indicators.
Siri 2(ESG02) Sustainability and Governance – Enterprise Risk Management: A dynamic trainer, Mr. Dennis Chong, prompted participants to dive into the critical realm of risk management. They engaged in interactive boardroom sessions, wearing their risk-thinking hats, and exchanging focused discussions. As Mr. Dennis rightly emphasized, every project comes with risks. The challenge lies in identifying them and integrating them into our strategies. It’s all about finding systematic ways to fuse business with the awareness of risks and the power of data. The key? Effective communication and technology.
Siri 3(ESG03) GHG Management: Mr. Tang’s session demystified GHGs and climate change’s impact through relatable examples and systematic approaches. Carbon pricing initiatives, offset strategies, life cycle understanding, and organizational-level GHG accounting became crystal clear. Exercises rounded out the session, letting participants gauge their knowledge. Mr. Tang’s goal? Prepare participants to assess and act on emission reduction, essential in the face of climate change.
