OM 606 - Creating Sustainable Business Practices


This course focuses on the principles and practices of corporate sustainability. The objective is to develop students’ understanding of how business leaders can make their organizations stronger, sharper, and more secure in the future through innovative management of their impact on the environment in which they operate. This environment includes both the physical and ecological environment as well as the human and social environment. Using examples from a variety of industries, this course will delve into the “Why?”, the “What?” and the “How?” of embedding sustainability into business practices and making them PAY OFF. Topics covered will include: the business imperative for sustainability, critical sustainability frameworks, and tools, product life-cycle considerations, strategy implications for design, operations and sourcing, and corporate sustainability reporting. Additionally, we will see sustainability in action through a company visit and guest speakers.
