Program Description:

This is a vocational postgraduate course for those wishing to develop or enhance careers in environmental and sustainability management. Environmental management in businesses involves the management of environmental issues arising from site-specific activities and from corporate management practices. Environmental management systems such as ISO14001 have led to the integration of good environmental practices into mainstream business management, leading to increased profitability and competitiveness. But today, this agenda is broadening to include social and economic dimensions, responding to new market opportunities in relation to sustainability management and corporate social responsibility. Career opportunities exist in commerce, industry, government and consultancy.
