For the records, the Chair on Sustainable Transformation was launched back in 2017 so as to boost sustainable transformation methods.
As far as research is concerned, the Chair investigated how companies can measure and monitor sustainability in their organization in a practical and efficient way. The Chair also explored the concept of sustainability leadership and of integrated value in companies.
...said Jacques Vandermeiren, CEO Port of Antwerp.
According to the collaborators, over the last three years of the initiative, several practical solutions have been developed, highlighting how to set sustainable transformation into practice.
Furthermore, under the Chair project, the Antwerp Partnership for Sustainability and the integration of sustainability skills in the full-time and executive master's programs of AMS was also supported. This immediately led AMS on top position in the new Positive Impact Rating that was recently launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
We will thus continue to collaborate over the next three years to further develop and share information and tools that will help companies to use their human potential for the benefit of individuals, business and society.
...Eddy Annys, COO of Randstad Group Belgium continued.
In the following three years, participants will focus on the development of a modular series of five training programs on sustainable transformation, drawing on the multidisciplinary expertise of AMS and incorporating best practices of the Chair's partners. In the near future, Chair aims to give a substantial boost to the roll-out of sustainable transformation.
