Undoubtedly it all starts with a sustainability assessment, as what you don’t know you cannot fix. If we do not take more action than our governments have thus far committed to, the average global temperature will rise 2.7 degrees before the end of the century. This is projected from a model based on earlier carbon dioxide levels and corresponding temperatures billions of years ago. This rise suggests near extinction-level results.

Addressing this threat will require real action in both the short and long term. Let’s start with the short term.

We see the prioritization of sustainability work be in the following order.

First, the biosphere. The life support systems upon which prosperity and development ultimately rest

Second, society. A group of people with common territory, interaction, and culture

Third, the economy. Allocate scarce resources to optimize interrelated production and consumption activities.

In this program, you will learn how to unpack the “E” part of ESG by assessing, analyzing, and contextualizing through a sustainability assessment called SOI. The program also provides you with a non-commercial test of our SOI-oriented assessment, including the generation of a free report.
