COURSES

The purpose of this course is to initiate a debate around the role and functioning of modern corporations as sustainability challenges, opportunities and solutions emerge. In particular, the objective is to detail and disentangle the links between corporate strategy, sustainability, and performance measurement systems as a means to translate sustainable strategies into effective outcomes and, at the same time, to provide investors and external stakeholders with a set of metrics that appropriately identify a company’s sustainable value and competitiveness.

Within this perspective, four major learning outcomes are expected:

  • To allow students to gain a solid and robust understanding of: (i) what a corporate performance measurement system is; (ii) how it can be developed and used; (iii) how it supports the formulation and implementation of a sustainable business strategy;
  • To allow students to understand key approaches and frameworks for measuring, assessing and reporting sustainability and corporate social responsibility;
  • To equip students with the necessary tools and techniques to evaluate green investments from both a financial and non-financial perspective;
  • To allow students to understand the key drivers behind the consistent and continuous growth of renewable energy as an industrial sector globally, and how policy, technology and capital interact together creating its backbone.


Over the last decade sustainability, corporate social responsibility and stakeholder management practices have become paramount for companies as well as for society. Although most companies have developed sustainability programs over the years, as they’re cutting carbon emissions, reducing waste, and otherwise enhancing operational efficiency, we are witnessing a mishmash of sustainability tactics that does not add up to a sustainable strategy. To endure, a sustainable strategy has to cope with the competing – and apparently divergent – interests of all stakeholders: investors, employees, customers, governments, NGOs, and society. The purpose of this course is to initiate a debate around the role and functioning of modern corporations as business ethics and sustainability challenges, opportunities and solutions emerge.
