School of Sustainability 

An online education platform for your entire organization 

Accelerate your business transition by empowering your employees 

ClimatePartner has joined forces with Exponential University (XU) to create the leading online education platform in sustainability. 

As the need for corporate climate action ramps up, so does the need to equip employees with sustainability knowledge and skills. Sustainable transformation involves all departments, business processes and engagement with stakeholders from suppliers to investors. To successfully implement sustainable business strategies, it is crucial that everyone in modern companies fully understands the importance of sustainability and feel empowered to be part of the change. 

ClimatePartner and XU have come together to build the School of Sustainability to support companies in achieving this transformation, fostering an engaging learning environment for everyone, at all levels, of an organization. As such, the School of Sustainability is a comprehensive online qualification program that is tailored to the needs of various personas and roles.
