Expanding economic activity has been accompanied by growing concerns about climate change, energy security and scarcity of natural resources. While industries are showing greater interest in sustainable production and are undertaking a number of corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives, progress falls far short of meeting these pressing challenges.
Industry must be restructured, and existing and breakthrough technologies must be more innovatively applied to realise green growth.
Raising efficiency in resource and energy use and engaging in a broad range of innovations to improve environmental performance will help to create new industries and jobs in coming years, towards a green economy and a more sustainable World.
The Executive Program in Sustainable Production fosters knowledge and skills of participants that contribute to a renewal of industrial production. Through Principles of Green Chemistry, Green Engineering and metrics with an holistic perspectives and case studies, the program provides a basis for interesting and important roles in industry, consultancy and research studies.
The Executive Program in Sustainable Production has strong focus on systems thinking and the underlying need to be proactive in creating production systems with minimal impact on the climate and people while keeping businesses profitable.
Participants will come away with tangible tools to manage and leading advance production systems and transition existing systems with a focus on circular material flow, increased digitalisation and automation, energy usage as well as new manufacturing technologies, as a part of the solution towards a sustainable society.
At the end of this course executives will be able to take decisions about:
