Welcome to Chronos
Chronos is an e-learning tutorial on sustainable
development that was developed by the University of Cambridge
Programme for Sustainability Leadership and the World Business
Council for Sustainable Development.
From May 2012, we will not be offering customisations of Chronos, but continue to offer the standard version of Chronos in four languages.
From February 2013, Chronos is only available via the Internet.
Chronos was designed to raise
awareness and provide employees with an introduction to the subject
of sustainable development. It
draws on the experience of many of the world’s largest companies,
and is aimed at a general audience rather than environmental
specialists. The objective of Chronos is to communicate the
business case for sustainable development and corporate social responsibility
(CSR) as widely as possible, and the sustainability
e-learning course is therefore offered at very low cost.
Companies know that if sustainability is to be embedded in their
organisations, their staff will need training. E-learning
about sustainability and CSR provides a practical and
cost-effective alternative to a conventional training course.
Chronos has been developed by experts in sustainable
development and it is also informed by best practice in corporate
e-learning techniques. Its content – a mixture of
information, video clips and interactive sessions such as role
plays and quizzes engages and educates the learner simultaneously.
Users have the opportunity to see how they would handle a variety
of business sustainable development dilemmas. The English language
version also contains a video welcome message by HRH The Prince of
