Corporate Sustainability Strategy

Suzanne Farver, ALM, JD, Principal, GreenFix, LLC., Harvard Extension School

This course explores corporate sustainability from the perspective of large, multinational corporations. We focus on the management tools available to corporations and how they can drive sustainability into a company at all levels, providing a balance between environmental stewardship, social well-being, and economic prosperity. We explore how to prioritize various actions through stakeholder engagement, how to prepare and analyze a sustainability report, and we examine the perspective of the investment community and important governance issues. By focusing on the beverage industry as a case example we explore social concerns such as obesity and alcohol responsibility, and environmental concerns including water and raw materials in developing countries.
