About the Course

We are surrounded by so much discussion of sustainability that it can sometimes become overwhelming. Important questions include: What role can business have in ensuring the sustainability of the planet? How should business work with society to preserve the environment? These questions will be answered in this course as we explore the meaning of sustainability and its impact on modern organisations as they move to circular ideas to reduce waste, increase recycling and become fit for our modern society. In the course you will not only learn about the role of business in sustainability, but also your own personal contribution. In addition to environmental issues we will also reflect on how employees are pressuring firms to see themselves as a positive part of the wider society. The specific topics we will cover include: Paris Climate Accord, Carbon Footprint, the circular economy, reverse logistics, recycling strategies, right to repair, Corporate Social Responsibility, Bottom of the Pyramid and developing economies, and fair trade business models. By the end of the course, your understanding of sustainability and business's relationship with society will have increased considerably. You will develop new skills in research and analysis and will have lots of new ideas to take away with you and apply in your own organisation and your own working life....

Course is good, but must have another way of grading like quizzes along with a few peer graded assignments, instead of just one peer graded assignment

Well structured with interesting contents, I was expecting more on the business side: Business Sustainability in the circular economy is very complex so what can we do? In my opinion the course proposes a lot of problems but not any solution or 'weapon' to face the complexity.

Anyway, a good start for a beginner.

An interesting short course with good content and online material. In my opinion there is more online research and non-mandatory work, which can easily be ignored, thus missing out on gaining the right amount of knowledge on the topics of the course. Also, while reviewing peer assignments found out submissions were rather disappointing , in many cases completely off point and even non-relevant, which means there is no screening level of control for the course. Overall, not a bad course to complete.

Good course if you're new to Coursera. Only one assignment that is required, everything else is practice quizzes or optional readings. Information and sources are UK based (obviously), so if you're not in the UK, things don't totally apply, but everything is similar enough where you can apply what you learn to wherever you live.

If the agenda seems promising, the content is poor.
