As the positive impact of sustainability on business performance is increasingly well established, organizations are moving beyond corporate social responsibility (CSR) to embed environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance in their strategy and operations. In this new reality, the business case for sustainability is clear; sustainability is a competitive advantage, improves risk management, encourages innovation, improves financial performance, and helps build employee engagement and customer loyalty. In this course, students explore options for structuring purpose-driven businesses (governance and necessary metrics) and the features of purpose-driven organizations (leadership, commitments, policies, reporting, and partnerships). Students have opportunities to compare the pros and cons of various sustainable business models.
