Basic concepts of ecology and environmental science are discussed and illustrated through lab experiences and then further elaborated through discussing environmental issues from a strategic business perspective. Discussions include how environmental pressures (e.g. sustainable development) and environmental problems (e.g. global warming, air pollution, waste-disposal), impact corporate mission, competitive strategy, technology choices, product development decisions, production processes, and corporate responsibility.
