MB 145 Environmental Management (Spring: 3)

Offered Periodically
Fulfills an elective requirement in public policy for Environmental Studies minors, an elective requirement for Human Resource concentrators, and a general elective requirement for Carroll School of Management undergraduates.
This course focuses on the management of organizations to achieve environmental sustainability. Concern with the natural environment has been treated as a peripheral issue for business. Environmental management was regarded as an added cost driven by regulation. Now there is a growing awareness that separating organizational management from the impact of the corporation on the environment is an unsustainable strategy. Managers are faced with pressures from stakeholders and have to make choices on how to integrate environmental responsibility into the operations of the organization. We will consider the techniques that managers can use to deal with the issue of sustainability.
