About the bundle

The Sustainable Business Operations bundle, offered by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), includes two online short courses: Business Sustainability Management and Sustainable Supply Chain Management. Led by faculty and industry experts, these courses equip you with the knowledge and skills to implement and promote sustainable development within your organisation. With a focus on the latest supply chain advancements, you'll learn to optimise logistics and procurement management and create more sustainable business processes. You'll also identify opportunities for long-term value creation and learn to drive positive change that addresses the challenges of modern business practices. This bundle provides practical tools, theoretical insights, and the motivation to implement sustainable development in your current role or career.
