This course prepares the students for the roles and responsibilities of a sustainability/climate leader within a business, governmental, or non-profit organizations. We discuss the causes of global climate change and its consequences in a risk model. We explore the technological, economic and public policy strategies for global warming mitigation, and for adaptation through building resilience and managing risk. Students will learn the standards and emerging metrics for assessment, monitoring, and disclosure of climate action strategies by corporations and governments. This course also includes a field study project that students carry out with a company or local government entity to deep-dive in a mitigation or adaptation challenge and to identify alternate solutions.
