The module is designed for students who want to gain deeper understanding of emission reduction strategies and sustainable management of companies. Students will experience the challenges and opportunities related to reducing corporate greenhouse gas emissions while at the same time managing overall business performance. This will include the actions that can be taken to reduce emissions, and the impact that such actions can have on the financial performance of a company.
Students will be able to apply their theoretical and conceptual knowledge of sustainability management in a hands-on application exercise. Upon successful completion of the course, students will understand drivers of greenhouse gas emissions, actions to reduce emissions and their impact on financial performance. Moreover, students will have acquired knowledge of how cutting greenhouse gas emissions can help companies to reduce costs and increase revenues and are able to evaluate corporate emission reduction efforts. The course focuses on the computer simulation Sustainability Management Simulation: Net Zero.
Bachelor-level knowledge of management and strong interest in application of sustainability management.
