The Nation’s First Localized Sustainability Professional Certificate


The green|leader Certificate is an eight-week course designed to help working professionals, students, and passionate citizens acquire a significant understanding of the fundamental challenges and business opportunities arising from our rapidly changing environment and economic landscape.

As we face unprecedented environmental, social and fiscal challenges, it’s essential that we, collectively, learn to conduct business differently. This Certificate creates environmental stewards - green|leaders - who will champion changes within their businesses, industries, and communities. A broad, holistic approach, the green|leader Certificate will examine how businesses can be resilient, increase efficiencies, prepare for risk and communicate the value propositions of sustainability to customers, employees and investors. 

 

Students will: 

  • Understand global, regional, and local sustainability challenges in energy, water, & material waste. 

  • Develop industry-specific environmental, social and fiscal impact indicators, and cost effective strategies to improve them. 

  • Learn adaptable strategies to help advance sustainability programs in a variety of business cultures. 

  • Become familiar with relevant sustainability certifications. 

The green|leader program has really helped me understand global environmental issues as well as those localized to Chattanooga. It discusses the steps different people and organizations are making to inspire beneficial changes and has given me the tools to mimic some of their sustainable practices in order to better lead my co-workers by example.
