The course thoroughly explores net zero enterprise-wide digital transformation and equips participants with the necessary tools and knowledge to successfully navigate this complex subject. The materials are comprehensive and easy to understand, and the self-study format allows for flexibility and convenience. I have personally seen the positive impact that completing this course has had on my company's approach to ESG issues. I highly recommend it to any board chairman looking to stay ahead of the game in an increasingly important and ever-changing field. ”

“There are only two ways to address sustainability and ESG at Board and Executive Management levels. The first method is trial and error. Errors do cost money, regulatory litigation, and in many cases, irreparable reputational damage by the stakeholders and investors alike. The second method, and by far the recommended method, is to get the right education from companies such as GBAC, where knowledge and certification can be acquired and shared! To our knowledge, few executive certification programs integrate the use of Artificial Intelligence AI in all aspects of sustainability - from supply chain to carbon footprint reporting to process automation. We found that the GBAC program provides a very good set of frameworks for applying AI in all key areas of ESG and Sustainability, bringing digital transformation into the focus of Directors and Executives. ”
