A brief description of the certificate program:

“Green” is the “gold standard” in modern business as industry leaders look for new and improved ways to implement sustainable strategies into their day-to-day operations. This creates a need for educated professionals to steer them in the direction of sustainable practices that make sense for their business model and goals. This certificate program provides an overview of environmental sustainability concepts and how to apply them in a business context. The program allows students to learn the core principles behind environmental sustainability, explore the “business case” for sustainability and learn strategies for measuring sustainable practices. Students also complete a sustainability assessment of an organization and recommend strategies for improving their operations, policies and programs.


Year the certificate program was created:
