Got questions? Good! Here’s a few FAQ’s

Is Sustainability Starter just for established businesses?

We’ve created this program so that it is suitable for both startups and scaleups either at the beginning or early on in their sustainability journey. We’re not teaching you how to do your job, we’re teaching you the fundamental principals and frameworks that you need to implement more sustainable practices across your business, and therefore it’s perfect for anyone embarking on this journey.

How do I get access to the education materials?

Access to the course materials is via a personalized online website portal, that makes the program available on desktop, tablets, and smart phones.  

Is the program better for product or service-based industries?

We love products and services! We welcome both and have been careful to ensure that the course is not skewed to one or the other. You’ll learn in a way that applies sustaibable business principals to both industries and across all operations. 

Can I learn at my own pace?

Absolutely, and we’re giving you lifetime access to all course materials so that you have plenty of time to watch, listen, and implement the content.

Do you offer a guarantee?

We guarantee the quality of the education we provide, however, your results are up to you. For this reason, we don’t offer any guarantee. Building sustainability into your business practices takes dedication, hustle and plenty of heart, and if you’re willing to do the work you will be successful.
