In the case of ESG training, it may not be explicitly mandated in safety-critical industries by law, but there is a growing expectation and incentive for it to be integrated into operations, including through training programs for employees. This is something we have seen reflected in the notable increase in enquiries regarding ESG training in recent months.

This surge is unsurprising, given the tightening of regulations by governments and regulatory bodies, coupled with the safety-critical industry's impact on public safety and environmental well-being. Indeed, the heightened interest in ESG training reflects a growing awareness of the need for all businesses to meet stakeholder expectations. Perhaps even more so for the safety-critical sector where there is a growing demand for action, transparency, accountability, and responsible behaviour.

Incorporating ESG training makes business sense and ensures that everyone from the ground up becomes accountable for the alignment between ESG principles and operational goals.

  • Employees can better understand the broader risks related to environmental impact, social responsibility, and the importance of diversity and inclusion.
  • C-suite can stay one step ahead of regulatory requirements related to environmental protection, social welfare, and corporate governance, allowing them to integrate vital considerations into their decision-making processes.
  • Stakeholders, from customers to investors, regulators and communities enjoy strengthened relationships and improved trust when companies can demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.

Training members of the safety critical industry in ESG makes a positive change a fast reality, and with an entire industry working towards ambitious net zero goals, harnessing the power of the people has never been more vital. Training plays a significant role, leading every member of the workforce to a shared understanding, which is a stepping stone to change.

The visually inspiring courses bring the typically ‘dry’ ESG content to life with multimedia graphics incorporating Kineo’s trademark colourful collage style. Each course is a short and impactful learning bite of up to 35 minutes and tailored for a diverse audience from entry-level employees to senior leaders.
