This course is designed to elevate participants’ skillsets, advance their career development, or qualify them to pursue a career in sustainability.

As efforts accelerate to grow the green economy, relevant jobs, skills and talent needs are also growing.

The growth in green job postings is outpacing the growth in green talent. Hiring for green skills grew globally by almost 40%.

In particular, skills in carbon markets and decarbonisation strategies management, and sustainable investment management saw the highest growth in demand of 1700% and 1550% respectively.

I acquired valuable knowledge, techniques, and skills to green the organisation's business model and incorporate sustainable real estate principles into the business growth strategy and profitability.

Mr Patrick Lai, Managing Director - WorldBiz Realty Pte Ltd

I was motivated to take this class to deepen my understanding of sustainability in the real estate sector and to address the challenges of integrating green technology into my work. Now, I can effectively apply sustainable practices, leverage green technology, and make informed decisions to create positive environmental impacts in my role.

The course provided me with a deep understanding of sustainability in Singapore's real estate sector and offered valuable insights into the global perspective. I appreciated the open forum structure, which enabled me to learn not only from the trainers but also from my peers.

Mr Heming Liu,

The course provides a solid foundation in sustainability and ESG reporting within the built environment. This knowledge is invaluable for anyone looking to transition into the sustainability sector. Moreover, on a personal level, it inspires us to drive change, irrespective of our roles. The program also delves into the current landscape of sustainable finance, including green bonds and sustainability-linked loans.
