RSM497H1: Sustainability Strategy


The environmental and social impact and context of business matter like never before. Diverse stakeholders—from shareholders and lenders to workers and consumers to governments and activists—are raising their voices to ensure that these considerations are given their due in business decision-making and that firms are being transparent and accountable for performance in diverse dimensions well beyond short-term financial performance. This course takes an economics and strategy lens to consider how business leaders can and should respond to the rise of these concerns in pursuing long-run sustainable growth and prosperity. The focus is on how these so-called ESG (environmental, social, and governance) issues affect every company in every sector, rather than on social enterprise or on firms whose primary mission is to directly address social and environmental concerns.
