This training program provides a better understanding of the Group's PURPOSE from an environmental and life cycle perspective.
Through this program you will be able to better understand other environmental issues beyond carbon such as: water and air pollution, resource scarcity, impact on biodiversity... and learn to adopt a life cycle approach.

It will enable you to master the basic principles of environmental assessment of products and services (Life Cycle Assessment), to learn how to use the results and to ask yourself the right questions, and to know how to use these results as a decision-making tool. And thus, avoid decisions that lead to pollution displacement.

This program also includes workshops on 2 key environmental issues: water and biodiversity.
