With the continued rise of consumer eco-conciousness and supporting regulations. sustainability is now a business imperative for fashion businesses. There is an opportunity for companies to integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives into business strategies and demonstrate impact. This appears more easily said than done though as measuring impact can be challenging due to the lack of transparent and consistent data, and the lack of standardisation of impact tools or the difficulty to identify the right ones.
This course serves as an introduction into the landscape of impact measurement and aims to provide a guide for startups and corporates to design their environmental, social, governance strategy for sustainability. It is ideal for executives who need to know how to build goals and measurements as a basis to communicate on business impact.
