“BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD” – GANDHI
Many of us worry about the melting polar ice caps, the plight of the polar bears and other species, and the potential rise in sea levels, which will threaten many coastal cities worldwide. However, we often miss out on the opportunities to solve the problem. As project managers, we have the ability to promote change and incorporate sustainability measures into our management work.
The term “sustainability” itself refers to the ability for something “to be maintained at a certain rate or level.” In environmental terms, this definition refers to eliminating or, at the very least, minimizing the negative impact on our planet for generations to come. Therefore, sustainable projects require planning everything out through the project life cycle and considering the future, the time beyond the project life cycle. To that end, sustainability necessitates mitigating the negative impacts on our communities, including people, economics, and social justice, which equates to equity.
- ISO 37101 Sustainable Development in Communities – This 4-day course covers the ISO standard itself and the ancillary processes and guidelines needed to develop for sustainable development in communities effectively. The ISO standard itself provides an outline and a checklist of tasks and procedures required to create and deploy a sustainable development plan effectively. Still, it lacks real-world examples and applications, which are crucial in effectively understanding the standard’s intent. To that end, we assist participants in interpreting and implementing the standard through actual case studies.
- Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Examination Prep Course – Maneuvering through LEED accreditation and certification can be daunting, not just the requirements for both, but the core guidelines that help us reach sustainable design ultimate construction. Therefore, we have designed this 4-day course to not only help you pass the LEED exams you select but also, and more importantly, to develop strategies for creating sustainable environments for individuals and communities. Additionally, this course will help you understand and develop, as required, an environmental management system (EMS) should you be seeking certification per the ISO Standards, which is an integral part of the European Union‘s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS).
- Sustainable Project Management Workshop – This 5-day course combines the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) framework for managing projects focusing on achieving sustainability goals, including social equity, regardless of whether you are pursuing sustainable certification. To that end, we will use real-world case studies to understand the approach behind carrying out a project successfully while adhering to sustainable guidelines and requirements.
