Business Sustainability


The Business Sustainability specialisation allows students to tailor their focus on sustainability around a range of possible foci, including sustainable business growth, sustainable transport, energy, social sustainability and corporate environmentalism and the business implications of climate change. The Business Sustainability specialisation provides students with expertise to identify the risks to, and opportunities for, value creation given rapidly changing regulatory regimes, social attitudes and environmental challenges. An understanding of sustainability is therefore a key competency for successful business graduates in an era of significant regulatory and market change (e.g. carbon emissions pricing, sustainability corporate rankings, reputational risks).
