About the Course

Course Overview: The global environment will continue to degrade until there are significant changes in business practices. In this course, we look at how some firms are responding positively to environmental concerns with new strategies. We look at 'best practices' of companies across countries and industries from different perspectives. We introduce a very helpful framework to structure your thinking about environment and business strategy. We explore why current destructive business practices are so 'sticky' and resistant to change. You don’t have to be an environmentalist or a tree-hugger to benefit from this course. Businesses should respond to change, environment is one of these changes. If you have an interest in the environment and some understanding of business strategy then this course should be useful to you....

Informative, engaging, interesting, well presented. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would recommend for beginners or even those in the sector who want a bit of a refresher. One thing IMHO that could be improved is the feedback on the quizzes. They are multiple choice and many require between 1 and 4 answers. There is no feedback given, just correct/incorrect overall for the question. It would be good to get a bit of explanation. I have had this in other courses and it is very helpful to steer you in the right direction. I got one question wrong a couple of times in the final quiz and I am still none the wiser as to what the correct answer is despite going back over the materials. Other than that, fantastic course. Do it!

All-in-all a great introduction to Green Business Strategy. Clear, concise videos and reading etc. I particularly liked Orsato framework from week 2 and the case studies from week 3. The quiz from week 4 needs some work though. The answers to the questions don't correlate with the material covered in that week - very frustrating to have to keep trying to pass the final quiz by guessing and randomly selecting different options (questions 5 & 6). It would be helpful to know which selections are right or wrong after each submission so you know the area to work on again.

This is a great course. It helps us to show why we need to adapt sustainable business framework now. How the business infrastructure doing these days and why we need to evolve it. It also showed me some business strategy for a firm that can be benefited from choosing green way with case study of many sustainable brands who got strategical advantage by going green.

Excellent lectures. I particularly enjoyed the real life case studies. However, it would be great if explanations to be given for quizzes questions answered wrongly in order to provide students further guidance.

The course has excellent content presented well by Professor Forster. Brilliant usage of diagrams and relevant examples, as well as the small but brain-teasing quizzes, makes this course enjoyable.

Everything about this course is great! Except for quizzes, which definitely need some more work. Other than that, I really enjoyed this course and learned many things.
