Sustainability: Policy & Practice
This course teaches students how organizations practice sustainability and how they plan for, shape, and react to the emerging environmental policies necessary to limit global warming. The investment community continues its quest to identify strong sustainability organizations, making public reporting more important than ever. NGOs and governments are pushing for higher ambition. Students will learn to make sustainability reports more meaningful to garner support from NGOs and attract investors. Students will develop marketable analytical skills that help guide organizations toward more robust sustainability actions and reporting, or help NGOs evaluate corporate reports for strengths and gaps.
