Oman Cables Industry, an Oman-based company engaged in the manufacture and sale of electrical cables and conductors, part of the Prysmian Group, launches the Global Sustainability Academy involving 29,000 employees in over 50 countries.
The initiative aims to spread the culture of sustainability within the entire corporate population worldwide and further strengthen the Group’s commitment to the implementation of its Climate & Social Ambitions, with reference to the parameters related to employees’ engagement and their up-skilling.
Energy and fiber optic cable technology is a key aspect in energy, digital, and electrification transition processes and the Sustainability Academy will enable the entire Group to strengthen the culture and skills of sustainability that represent a strategic driver of business competitiveness. The Sustainability Academy training program will also involve the most influential business schools at the international level.
The course structure, which will include lessons throughout 2023, is divided into five modules – Awareness, Knowledge, Impact, Leadership, and KPIs – differentiated according to the target audience. The first module, IMPACT, starts today in Oman and will involve for three days 30 managers from all over the world on the following topic: “How to innovate and spread sustainability in organizations”. The modules will have a hybrid formula: some of them will be in presence (like those currently taking place in Oman), while others will be available online or via podcasts, reaching the entire company population.
“With an Academy of Sustainability in Oman we want to contribute to the development of distinctive skills, creating value through positive business models based on the growth and empowerment of our human capital, to promote a diversified and inclusive system open to new perspectives, and to promote the capacity to innovate by training the sustainable leaders of the future. This is in line with Oman vision 2040 and the Sultanate’s commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050,” said Cinzia Farisè, CEO of Oman Cables and CEO of Prysmian MEAT Region.
