To support companies in building the skills needed to develop a sustainability strategy, BCSD Portugal has created the Sustainability Journey Training Program.

The Training Program is made up of four stages – Discover Sustainability, Beginners, Conquerors and Beacons – and is open to professionals and employees of companies or other organizations, designed for any stage of the journey and with an offer targeted to different levels of knowledge and maturity on sustainability.

When sustainability is still new, companies should start with the Discover Sustainability experience.

At any given moment, companies can self-assess sustainability, which can identify the degree of integration of environmental, social and governance resources into the company’s strategy, as well as its competencies, innovation policy and organizational culture. For self-assessment, contact BCSD Portugal.
