Online sustainability leadership training

ISM_ModelTo meet the growing demand for professionals who can manage sustainability initiatives within organizations, Colorado State University is offering an online Integrated Sustainability Management badge and certificate program.

The program, delivered by OnlinePlus and the Institute for the Built Environment, provides the knowledge and tools to develop more environmentally and financially sustainable practices inside an organization, as well as build and foster an organizational culture to support them.

“Across industries, the momentum to create socially and environmentally responsible settings continues to increase,” said April Brown, program manager. “The leading researchers and experts who teach in this program help you become an effective agent of positive change for healthier economies, cities, and workplaces.”

The program features four course modules, each focusing on a key area of sustainability: organization, people, resources, and facilities. For each module completed, participants earn a digital badge that can be displayed on a resume or shared on social media, and can provide proof of expertise to employers because it links to a site listing details of competencies learned. Upon completion of all four modules and an assessment, participants earn a Mastery Badge and certificate.

Course registration is now open, and courses begin in February 2015. To register, or for more information, visit the website or call (970) 492-4711.
