As the planet's environment changes, so do its effects on the business world. Environmental changes impact business practices. From natural resources to supply chains, to logistics, to energy sources, to customer behaviors and demographics, businesses must adapt or be left behind. Further, climate change requires businesses to adopt sustainable practices in order to remain economically viable and environmentally responsible. In this course, you will learn about the organizational risk companies face if they don't embrace sustainability, some common reasons why organizations resist such a move, potential business opportunities presented by sustainable practices, and the business benefits of adapting sustainable business practices. Materials in this course are based upon content provided in partnership with MIT Sloan Management Review.
