1 unit - Professor Kristen Martin

This course examines business, law, and policy issues associated with the goal of environmental sustainability, focusing on external regulation and internal governance. Sustainability concepts have a legal impact on industries such as agriculture, high-tech manufacturing, and international tourism, as well as on broader social issues like climate change, hunger, and water access. A field trip may be offered to an enterprise or institution incorporating sustainability practices through construction, governance, and ethical norms.
