BAET 30520 - Topics in Sustainable Business
The course will provide an introduction to relevant terms and concepts in the areas of social and environmental sustainability. The course will enhance awareness of corporate sustainability and ESG (environment, social and governance) concepts, explore the role of stakeholders in business decisions, and allow students to learn from "best practices" in these areas, featuring top companies including GE Corporation, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and others. Other relevant initiatives will be included, for example, interacting with the newly-appointed University of Notre Dame Sustainability Director. Concepts to be examined include core sustainability terms such as dematerialization and relocalization, along with a close look at companies who have successfully incorporated such approaches. Frameworks and metrics of sustainability will be a focus of the course to allow an understanding of the importance of practical application of sustainability goals. The course runs concurrent with the MBA-level course in sustainability; shared speakers and opportunities for cross-cultivation may be possible.
