Sustainability Management and Policy Universiti Teknologi Malaysia
This course has two primary objectives. Firstly, it will present the theories and associated practices concerned with sustainable management, policy and governance. Concepts such as sustainable consumption and production, non-structural management, and sustainable policy making will be covered. Emphasis is placed on public and private sector governance and their different approaches to the integrated management of environmental, social and economic concerns. Secondly, current environmental policies – water, energy and waste – at both governmental and corporate levels will be analysed in relation to the theories covered in the first part of the course. Malaysian and global perspectives on these environmental policies are analysed. Furthermore, the key policy developments in the latest international sustainability reporting procedures, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) will be covered. By the end of the course, participants will be equipped to i) evaluate the effectiveness of corporate or public sustainability strategies and ii) integrate different sustainable approaches into corporate and public sector settings. Case studies will be drawn from local and international scenarios. Particular emphasis will be placed on team-work and effective communication skills so that course participants can contribute to behaviour change approaches and corporate sustainability strategies.
