Journey towards sustainability

Journey towards sustainability2019-03-04T15:04:40+00:00

It is an experience, in which companies, members or not, of any size and sector of activity, can participate and experience the path towards sustainability

It is a training service consisting of three main stages – beginners, achievers and beacons – from which companies can benefit from at any stage of their sustainability course, depending on the company’s sustainability stage of maturity.

In the case of companies that do not yet know the principles of sustainability, BCSD Portugal is available to provide a previous experience (Discover Sustainability Day) on the current sustainability challenges, the general basic concepts, the respective risks and opportunities for companies and case studies.

The Sustainability Journey is carried out in face-to-face format and can be tailored to the needs of each individual company or sector. Tailor-made solutions may follow the standard training model or be adapted to the needs of each group of trainees and their objectives, which allows the creation of specific courses directed to the trainees’ professional activity.

BCSD Portugal is a training entity certified by DGERT – Direção-Geral do Emprego e das Relações de Trabalho. Companies can therefore use BCSD Portugal to ensure continuous training for their employees in matters of sustainability.
