Environmental, Social and Governance Sustainability Programme

For organisations investing in a sustainable future


  • International

A bespoke programme tailored for your organisation. Your leaders will learn how to drive positive change and implement a successful ESG strategy.

The socially conscious lens

From climate change and clean water to poverty and gender equality, the most pressing challenges of our time are both global and inextricably linked. Creating a future that is more equitable and sustainable for all is a priority for many organisations, but how to achieve that goal is a more complex question.

Oxford Saïd, and the wider University, is committed to helping business leaders view their decisions through a socially conscious lens. As environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria become increasingly important in economic strategy, learning how to navigate the many factors that influence finance and investment is essential.

Our unique approach


This bespoke programme is completely customisable and will be delivered to a closed group of your colleagues. You can shape it to include research and micro scenarios that focus on the service sectors that apply to your business.

Our extensive collection of case studies containing targeted analysis will resonate with your participants. We also have a range of modules and sessions that you can choose from to create the perfect content for you. Topics range from from basics like understanding why ESG matters and what it means for responsible business, to forward-looking concepts like developments and trends in sustainable finance and the future of the corporation and corporate purpose.

The programme has been created by esteemed researchers and practitioners across disciplines. It delivers unparalleled context and insight to address the ESG factors most relevant to your organisation.


You will uncover why environmental and social issues matter to companies, investors and policy-makers. You will develop a deeper understanding of ESG concepts, including origins, macro trends, economic drivers, risk and return implications, valuation and measurement, impact on capital markets and policy developments.

Our goal is to equip your organisation with the tools to develop a strong ESG strategy to ensure success and drive progress.
