Spring. 1 credit. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: EMPA students.

A. Siwo.

In this course, led by Professor of Practice, John Tobin-de la Puente and facilitated by CIPA Lecturer Andrew Siwo, you will critically examine the sustainability-based interactions between corporate entities, their peers, regulators, the public, and other stakeholders in order to identify opportunities for improving the outcomes of these interactions. To do this, you will examine how corporate structure affects business practices and how different industries are affected by the sustainability movement. You will then identify how these factors influence a company’s motivation to act more sustainably. Next, you will appraise the complex relationships between corporations and their stakeholders and consider the balancing act today’s corporate leaders face as they uphold their corporate fiduciary duties and navigate ever-changing sustainability demands. Last, you will assess the impacts of business activities on the environment and pinpoint a company’s positive and negative sustainability efforts.

Outcome 1: Students will analyze corporate structure and its relationship to sustainability motivation.

Outcome 2: Students will examine the relationships of corporations with their direct and indirect stakeholders.

Outcome 3: Students will evaluate a company in detail to analyze/understand sustainability practices.
