Together rather than against one another: After Houdini just made the development specifications of one of its most sustainable products available as Open Source, the German outdoor brand Vaude has now announced the foundation of the “Vaude Academy for Sustainable Business.” The academy is designed to support other companies on their way to a sustainable and future-proof organization. Interested companies, organizations, schools and universities can profit from the academy’s broad wealth of experience of the outdoor brand, which has been awarded many sustainability prizes. The academy’s offering includes lectures, workshops and individual consulting services and is aimed at companies, professional networks and organizations. It ranges from specific, individual measures to the design of a sustainable corporate strategy and the introduction of sustainability management systems. The focus is also on important components such as an understanding of leadership, a corporate culture based on trust and the holistic integration of employees in the transformation process. The offer is individually tailored and can take place either personally or digitally. More in The Outdoor Industry Compass.
