Strategies for Environmental Sustainability

SMG SI 453

Can firms increase both environmental performance and profitability? Sometimes, but not always. In this course, we consider how and when firms can respond to growing demands for improved environmental performance and disclosure (from customers, NGO, activists, and regulators) in a way that also improves the long term financial performance of the firm. Through case studies and current news articles across a variety of contexts (consumer products, food services, energy service companies, and renewable energy), mini-lectures, and a team project working with the BU Sustainability Office, this course provides exposure to many topics related to sustainability and provides hands-on experience with the analytical tools and thinking required to evaluate the business case for sustainability.
