Metrics for Sustainability
Metrics for Sustainability (June 3–28)
Online with videoconferenced class sessions Tuesdays & Thursdays at 7:30 PM and Saturdays at 10:00 AM (US Central Time)
The new goal of sustainability requires new metrics for measuring and reporting its achievement. This course covers systems for certifying the sustainability of products, processes, and firms. Topics include the various systems for “green” product certification and, at the process and firm levels, “triple bottom line” reporting, carbon footprint assessment, the Global Reporting Initiative, the ISO 14001 environmental management standard, and the exemplary efforts of individual firms such as Wal-Mart’s Sustainability Index.
