ES 2300 - Principles of Sustainability


An examination into the use of natural resources and the global forces and demands that influence their availability.

How businesses and organizations are addressing sustainability is examined and how success or limitations is measured. This includes operational policies across all segments of the organization from manufacturing, use of resources and energy, transportation, communication, and what it means to “go green.” This includes the use of real‐world case studies involving sustainability challenges, successes and shortcomings are examined.
