ORGS 3006 Management Practices for Sustainable Business
Hours:Three hours of lecture per week for one term.
Description:This course exposes students to the complex field of corporate and product specific sustainability measures. We will explore metrics in all three pillars of sustainability (financial, environmental and social). We will show how important it is to dig deep into an organization?s operations and its value chain to truly understand how sustainable its practices and products are. Students will learn through theories, frameworks, and cases for measuring sustainability. We will investigate ""good practices"" of companies who have implemented sustainability measures and those who are struggling. Students will develop their own repertoire of tools and implementation strategies that can be utilized across industries and sectors to set up sustainability metrics that yield financial, social and environmental profit.
