Understanding Sustainability Management

Course Code: ER0113CA18

2010-2012 Recycling Catalog
Date & Time

Last Held: December 19, 2017
8:30am - 3:45pm (Check in time: 8:00am)

Next offering TBD.

Description

This program has been designed to help individuals better understand how economic activity – and the programmatic decisions it drives – may impact the health of the environment and society. The course will examine how and why natural resources are often undervalued or ignored completely by traditional accounting practices and economic data. It also will discuss why natural assets, such as clean air and water, tend to be abused precisely because they are the "common property" of society at large.

Specific topics will include:

  • What is sustainability—and why should we care?
  • Why people, communities and nations overwhelm natural resources
  • Global climate change—real numbers and predicted costs
  • Industrial ecology—how does it fit in
  • Systems analysis and process improvement—evaluating what YOU do
