About the bundle

The Sustainable Business and Finance bundle, offered by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), equips business leaders, entrepreneurs, and industry innovators with a comprehensive understanding of the impact of sustainability issues on business. By combining the Business Sustainability Management and Sustainable Finance online short courses, you'll gain the tools to unlock sustainable growth and develop strategic business and financial practices that prioritise people, nature, and the planet. This bundle helps you create an action plan to address sustainability challenges, explore the benefits of sustainable financial systems, and create a customised roadmap for establishing a thriving economy with long-lasting sustainable value creation, all while drawing insights from real-world case studies and interactive content.
