A professor of Strategic Management and Dean at Lagos Business School, Pan-Atlantic University, Chris Ogbechie, says sustainability has become more strategic for organisations as a “big driver” for innovation.
Ogbechie, who was a keynote speaker at the Association of Sustainability Professionals of Nigeria’s inaugural induction ceremony in Lagos State on Thursday, urged its members to gear up and create the necessary opportunities that would enable organisations to give more recognition to the sustainability sector.
Speaking on the theme, ‘Importance of professionalising sustainability in Nigeria,’ he said, “Practitioners need to level up and have a great necessary impact that will ensure that professionals are elevated to the board level where decisions concerning the organisations are taken. This will help deepen the sector and reposition the industry.”
The induction ceremony with the theme ‘Together we can and will deliver a sustainable Nigeria’ was held at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, according to a statement.
During the event, the organisation inducted new members to the institute as part of its vision to support in the positioning of Nigeria as a sustainable nation by encouraging more professionals and citizens to incorporate sustainability in their personal and professional lives.
The President of ASPN, Kenneth Amaeshi, in a statement, said the association was happy to be inducting its first set of members. ,,
