Miri – 1 December 2010 – A half-day sustainability assessment workshop themed ‘Building Multi Criteria Decision Making Models for Sustainability Assessment’ will be held in the LTBS Lecture Theatre of the School of Business (Heron 2) at Curtin University, Sarawak Malaysia (Curtin Sarawak) this Friday, 3 December 2010.
Dr Des Klass, an associate professor at the Curtin Business Graduate School (CGSB) and co-principal of the Centre for Innovation in Decision Quality in Perth, Western Australia, will facilitate the workshop, which will provide participants with first-hand information on how to help develop sustainability assessment models.
The workshop is open to the public and participation is free of charge. All companies with interests in environmental impact and business sustainability are encouraged to participate.
The workshop is timely as sustainability issues have become prominent on corporate agendas and new demands are placed on companies and their leadership to consider the long-term impact of short-term decisions, as well as the effects of strategies, practices and outcomes on external stakeholders. As a consequence, companies face the daunting task of integrating sustainability into the management and operations of businesses.
According to Dr Pauline Ho, the School of Business’ R&D Coordinator, Dr Klass is no stranger to the corporate decision-making culture as he consults for industry and was special advisor to the multibillion dollar Woodside Browse LNG development project in Western Australia. He will take the participants through the necessary steps needed to ensure proper sustainability assessment.
Registration for the workshop will commence at 8.30 am on 3 December 2010, while the workshop itself will start at 9.00 am.
