Why Enrol for the Circular Economy and Sustainability Strategies programme?

The overexploitation of natural resources required to achieve economic growth and development has negatively impacted the environment and adversely affected their availability and cost. So, it is easy to see why the idea of a circular economy, which offers new ways to create a more sustainable economic growth model, is taking hold across the globe. This programme is designed to help you understand the growing business case for sustainable solutions and learn how to manage and grow a sustainable business by incorporating circular economy principles into your strategies.

Gabrielle Allen

CEO, Media Farm

"I found the entire structure of the program and the presentation of the information to be very clear and helpful. It truly exceeded my expectations! Dr Soufani and Dr Cole shared phenomenal knowledge, and my program leader as well as the teams that ran the office hours were amazing too. I feel that I am now part of a greater community of people from around the world who are equally as concerned and proactive in making positive change through innovation and application of the principles that we all learnt in this course!"

Susan Rockefeller

Editor-in-Chief of Musings, documentary filmmaker, artist and conservationist

"I loved the videos—they were short and concise with accompanying case studies. In addition, I also loved the sustainability workbook as a guide to test ideas and make goals for my own work."

Juan Manuel Piqueras Boza

Global Head of Brands Combustibles, BAT

"A few things that stood out in this program were the easy-to-understand and relatable course material, diverse real-life examples and supportive learning facilitators. It also included the financial perspective, offered direction for the implantation of ideas and addressed change management, which made this an enriching experience."

Lana Uzelac

Head of Corporate Control and Finance Transformation, L'Oreal (Croatia)

"For me, the best part was the huge amount of information that I got from participants and course leaders. Not only did it cover concrete company examples but also spoke about different organisations that we should track to obtain novelties."

Ioannis Sideris

CEO, Hellenic Recycling Agency

"The practical understanding that this programme proved was great! Designing a circular business model, stakeholder analysis and creating a pitch definitely made for a useful challenge that I particularly enjoyed."

Claudia de la Vega

Corporate Affairs/ESG Director, Walmart Mexico

"Learning frameworks, like the circular economy framework, Pestel and ReSOLVE, was very rewarding."

Stephanie Cheong

"This programme helped me reframe what it means to be circular within the wider context of the economy and how to correctly express my ideas in relation to pre-existing, recognised benchmarks of sustainable production."
