Learning is a proven and well-documented strategy for strong individual and organisational performance. Training fosters knowledge transfer, giving rise to further innovation, efficiency and competitive insight.

Sustainability is another context in which to facilitate knowledge transfer and establish corporate excellence – like safety, quality, code of conduct, sales and IT. It provides a new lens for viewing the business, including the organisational ecosystem that extends to the communities in which it operates. The knowledge transfer challenge is to find ways to help people become fundamentally more aware of how factors that we label under the umbrella of sustainability affect their day job and the lives and day jobs of others.

The organizations need to focus on developing training programs for their employees, where they are trained on understanding the sustainability goal of the organization and the process to achieve this goal.
