3 Credit(s) | Lecture | Graded
Course can be counted for credit once

This course examines the rapidly growing field of environmental management in the context of climate change and corporate sustainability. We will assess the strategies pursued by business as it engages with the challenges and opportunities presented by various environmental issues, including resource scarcity, increasing demand for clean energy and energy efficiency, air and water pollution, hazardous waste, environmental reporting and disclosure, and working with environmental organizations and regulatory authorities. We will discuss the impact of regulatory, market, and voluntary approaches to addressing environmental concerns through improved organizational environmental performance. The course will introduce students to the relevant scientific, economic, and policy aspects of climate change and consider their physical, regulatory, and market impacts on business in various sectors. The students will have an opportunity to use this newly acquired knowledge by constructing an actionable environmental management plan for an individual business sector of their choice.
