CHICAGO, August 7, 2018 /3BL Media/ - The Center for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE) will be holding an unprecedented second session of its Certified Sustainability (CSR) Practitioner Program, Advanced Edition 2018, in Toronto, October 25-26, 2018.  April’s training was sold out, requiring several participants to go on a waiting list.

Why all the interest in Sustainability Practitioner training? 

For example, Alphabet, Inc. (Google) has agreed to invest $50 million into planning Sidewalk Toronto.  The waterfront project envisions a high-tech community, prioritizing sustainability.  Innovative technologies include: self-driving vehicles, underground garbage collection, green energy, snow-melting sidewalks, modular construction, and a lot of data collection.

 Built “from the Internet up,” connected sensors will enable extensive data collection, allowing residents and workers access to customized programs and services. The waterfront community may ultimately reach over $1 billion invested. 

What about the toxic blue-green algae in Humber Bay, 10 km from Sidewalk Toronto? 

Canada must prepare for “hotter, wetter and wilder” weather.  Scientists, urban planners, and engineers need a strong sustainability foundation to help mitigate the inevitable – whether preparing for eco-migrants or garbage-smelling algal blooms.

Toronto boasts over 800 sustainability-related job listings, across many disciplines, with over 3000  openings throughout Canada (Indeed).  Sustainability experts are required who understand finance, government, and law.  Companies will face ever-changing regulations, reporting requirements and CSR expectations.

Sustainability and finance converge with Toronto being the second Canadian city to issue a green bond,  raising $300 million.

Sustainability practitioners will be best positioned to meet these needs. 

CSE has trained over 5000 executives, many from Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies, with more than 1400 certified practitioners.  Corporations across many industries, local governments, NGOs and academia have trusted CSE for advanced training.

CSE will deliver its Certified Sustainability (CSR) Practitioner Program, Advanced Edition 2018, for a second time this year in Toronto, October 25-26, 2018
