About the CSR Masterclass
This CSR Masterclass is designed for Sustainability & CSR managers from all sectors and functions, and focuses on their role in mainstreaming CSR and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within an organisation.
The training is delivered by EMG Senior consultants trained at the Cambridge University in United Kingdom. Over the years, EMG has become a recognized authority in field of CSR and Sustainability. The winner of numerous international awards for its quality service and generated impact, EMG is regularly invited as a keynote speaker and international expert to share its thoughts and opinions on the most important trends in CSR and Sustainability.
Prior to the Masterclass, participants have access to a short assessment outlining key issues they want to focus, to help them maximise their time. The Masterclass is more than a one-off inspirational event. Participants are supported after the event, whilst taking action to make their organisation more sustainable, and there is the option of meeting again, six months after the programme, to discuss progress and share further challenges.
