Global Certificate Sustainable Entrepreneurship (G.S.E. Certificate)

According to estimates, the total combined consumption by all the human activity around the world is greater than the resources generated by the planet. In other words, every year, the Earth Overshoot Day is being reached earlier, and this overtakes the planet’s ability to generate those resources for that year. Scientists and international agencies have consistently reported on the root causes and consequences of climate change, alerting thus global leaders and the world about this phenomenon. 

In this context, Sustainable Entrepreneurs have taken on impressive initiatives in their endeavor to solve environmental, social and economic challenges. This new model of social enterprise focuses on the wellbeing of human beings, the ecosystem as well as economic value. They show that it is possible to generate environmental and social value while at the same time providing a profitable business benefit. The business case for sustainable development is getting strong across industries. Companies and entrepreneurs are realizing that our natural and social capital can no longer be taken for granted, which becomes a motive to jump the ‘S curves’, through innovation and technological advancement.
