July 29 & 30: National Sustainability Conference 2010

The Office of Environmental Sustainability (OES), National University of Singapore and the Workplace Research Centre (WRC), University of Sydney are jointly organising The National Sustainability Conference 2010, entitled “Environmental Up-Skilling & the Green Collar Industry”.

This conference builds on the Climate Change @ Work series of conferences which take place in Australia and promote achieving sustainability in the workplace through sustainable leadership and management practice.

This conference will promote achieving sustainability in workplaces through sustainable leadership and green business solutions. The role of the workplace as a major player and as a solution provider within the international climate debate is now recognized, and interaction with the public and corporate policy agenda is increasingly important.

The main themes of the 2010 conference will centre on important management issues, such as how sustainability practices will affect workplace relations, skill demands and career opportunities, to operational issues such as carbon emissions mitigation practices in the generic workplace. It will feature case studies from companies who will be showcasing how they have driven and developed sustainable business practices in their organisations.

The conference comprises three sessions –

Session 1: Future Landscape of the Environmental Economies in the Asia Pacific Region

Session 2: Growing the Sustainable Workplace

Session 3: Environmental Up-skilling: Implications for Skills and the Labour Market
