About

This course follows on from the IATA Design a Sustainability Strategy Fundamentals course, and focuses on designing a sustainability strategy for your company by providing an overview of how you design a sustainability strategy but with more in-depth information on some elements such as the materiality matrix, stakeholder mapping and engagement and implementation. The general strategy includes carefully laid out timelines and goals in order to position your business to meet all regulatory and pressing sustainability issues and to meet passenger and corporate expectations in the marketplace. This course will address a wide range of issues including carbon and water footprints, energy, regulatory requirements, environmental trends, alternative fuels, policy and reporting, stakeholder engagement, strategic marketing and communications, environmental management systems, partnerships and more. You will be provided with case studies, will get the opportunity to share your experiences, will have to work in groups and prepare your own sustainability strategy. The course takes a very hands-on approach and the last day will focus on presenting your strategies and receiving relevant feedback and guidance from your instructor and peers.
