Simulation Overview

The ESG simulation is a dynamic, forward-thinking game where students manage stakeholder expectations, balancing profitability with sustainability.

Participants take on roles as corporate management, investors, regulators, or union representatives. Tensions rise as they implement ESG initiatives, navigating diverse interests and perspectives in the corporate landscape.

This multiplayer simulation encourages critical thinking by demonstrating how ESG initiatives affect the income statement and the various trade-offs involved. Participants are assessed based on the results they achieve, with each role having specific objectives in the simulation.
