Luxembourg Sustainability Management Series (LSMS)

Luxembourg Sustainability Management Series (LSMS)

15/03/2023 Chambre de Commerce Luxembourg
7, rue Alcide de Gasperi
L-1615 Luxembourg



These training sessions aim to introduce participants to the major issues of sustainable development and their concrete application in a company’s strategy. These 11 modules are based on the intervention of specialised professionals, who will share their expertise with the attendees. Indeed, each session is introduced by a lead speaker who will present the theme and its challenges. They will then be joined by a second spokesperson animating a case study. The plurality of the speakers will allow the participants to acquire theoretical knowledge but also to benefit from field experiences.


At the end of this training, participants will be able to identify the development opportunities emerging from the integration of ESG criteria into a global strategy and the resulting growth opportunities.
