Sustainability is now embedded in the business planning cycle of every forward-looking business. Sustainability Measurement, Implementation, and Evaluation (SMIE) aims to equip students with the ability to identify and manage these sustainability initiatives in both private sector and public sector organizations. It will be relevant and useful for any students, regardless of discipline, to keep abreast of the latest developments in sustainability. The focus of the course will be on assessing and measuring environmental impacts using various spreadsheets, templates, and quantitative and qualitative analyses, then applying appropriate technology and behaviour changes to increase sustainable practices. Specific cases, situations, and scenarios will be introduced to help provide students with the evaluation of practical methodologies they can use at work and in their communities to increase the world’s level of environmental sustainability.
This course is restricted to students enrolled in the 3rd or 4th years of their program.
