A unique approach to sustainability education for the European chemical industry
J. LeCavalier & Associates played an active role in the design and launch of this ground-breaking eight-month distance learning course that trains professionals in the European chemical industry to become “sustainability change agents” within their respective companies. Hosted by Sweden’s Blekinge Institute of Technology and the Natural Step – and financially supported by Hydro Polymers and Rohm and Haas – the course is a rich blend of e-learning, expert-led webinars, on-site workshops and collaborative project work. In its first year, the course attracted participants from 14 companies in the UK, Austria, France, Sweden, Norway and Germany.
This is an excellent start to our endeavour of creating cross-sectoral cooperation for sustainability. (Karl-Henrik Robèrt, Founder, The Natural Step)
