University of Nicosia: Training Programme “Business Sustainability and Governance” Practical applications of the European Business Sustainability Model by the Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility Centre of the University of Nicosia

The Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility Centre (CSRC) of the University of Nicosia announces the training programme “Business Sustainability and Governance” in order to support businesses to take the right approach to integrating sustainability into their strategy and the necessary transformation of their business model. The training programme is offered for the first time in Cyprus and seeks to build on the international experience of the EFQM Model to help those companies that are either required by the relevant European Directives (CSRD, CSDD, etc.) or have voluntarily chosen to integrate sustainability management into their agenda.

The programme will take place on 15 and 16 March 2023 at the premises of the University of Nicosia, from 08:30 to 16:45, and includes 14 hours of institutional training and 4 hours of mandatory in-house training (for each participating company).

It is mainly addressed to board members and senior and top management and executives of companies and organisations in areas such as: strategic management, process reengineering, business development, investor relations management, human resources management, communication and marketing management, supply chain and procurement management, corporate social responsibility and sustainable development management, health, safety and environmental management, and quality and systems management.

Learners will have the opportunity to engage in an interactive sustainability journey through a 10-step process that follows the 7 Criteria of the EFQM Model. The journey for participants begins with an understanding of the importance of having a business direction (DIRECTION), the need to effectively implement a sustainability strategy (EXECUTION), and measuring performance (RESULTS). At the same time, participants in the program will be supported to understand whether everything they have learned in the institutional part of the training can be adopted and applied during the in-company part.

The programme has been approved by the HRD Authority as a vital programme, is fully subsidised by the HRD and therefore there is no financial burden for companies wishing to participate.
