Corporate management for sustainable development is emerging as a core competency for business leaders. The ability to create value from, and mitigate risks associated with, sustainable development increasingly impacts markets, access to capital, company reputation and shareholder value. Managers who understand the need for a strategic approach to corporate sustainability management will perform across the 'triple bottom line' of environmental, social and financial performance to preserve value and create new business opportunities.
Upon completing this subject students will be able to demonstrate:
- An understanding of leading-edge thinking and practice in the highly dynamic field of corporate sustainability management.
- The ability to develop and communicate a business case for sustainability.
- Familiarity with the conceptual frameworks and practical tools to apply sustainability in an organisational setting. Students will share in a participative and collaborative learning environment. Corporate case studies and business speakers will enhance the 'real-world' relevance of the subject material.
