In 2020, 96% of the world’s largest 250 companies published reports on their sustainability performance in accordance with national and international standards. Now many more companies are committing to sustainability, and Net Zero emissions in particular. This creates a new responsibility and opportunity for HR leaders. Staff must be trained in new policies, goals and procedures. Executives need help as leaders in this new approach. This one-hour course summarizes SHRM research into HR and sustainability, plus other expert sources and the instructor's own 30-year journey helping companies become more sustainable.
