Sustainability is moving from the margins to the centre of business thinking and practice. In this subject we investigate what businesses are doing to adopt a more sustainable approach and evaluate how businesses utilise sustainability as a source of competitive advantage. Looking at a number of Australian and international case studies, the subject will attempt to analyse how individual businesses are attempting to align their activities to address global sustainability challenges such as climate change, resource scarcity and ethical conduct.
After an initial introduction to sustainability and sustainable development, the subject presents a number of theories, models and strategic options for sustainable business. Subsequently this concept of corporate sustainability is analysed from the perspective of a variety of stakeholders - customers, suppliers, investors, employees, investors, employees, the natural environment, the broader community and civil society.
