The general goal of this course is to provide a graduate level introduction to corporate environmental management in developing countries. While many in the business, government, and non-profit sectors view environmental protection as inevitably ignored and/or a threat to competitiveness, others see win-win opportunities. What allows some actors to see opportunities where others see a threat to economic growth and competitiveness? To answer this question the course’s specific objectives are:
1.1 Provide students with the knowledge to understand how the distinctive contextual characteristics of emerging market countries affect business, government, and social groups’ environmental protection preferences and behavior.
1.2 Examine and discuss different perspective used to judge win-win and critical perspectives on corporate environmental/social responsibility in developing countries.
1.3 Teach students how to design win-win environmental/social responsibility strategies that can be effective in developing countries.
