About the bundle

The Sustainable Marketing and Communication Strategy bundle from the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) provides you with a comprehensive skill set for creating, marketing and communicating a strategy that drives impactful change.

With a focus on minimising environmental and social impact while maximising positive transformation, you'll acquire practical tools, explore cutting-edge research and insights, and enhance your ability to challenge norms and create value for all stakeholders.
