Module overview

Sustainability reporting is an organization’s practice of reporting publicly on its economic, environmental, and/or social impact, and hence its contributions - positive or negative – towards the goal of sustainable development. To ensure sustainable development, the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015. Among the goals is SDG 12 on ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’. Target 12.6 of the SDG encourages companies to adopt sustainable practices and sustainability reporting. Coupled with this development, the Paris Agreement on climate change which is a legally binding treaty adopted by 196 countries and came into force in November 2016. The goal of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably 1.45 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial level. Therefore, there is need to equip undergraduate students the with relevant skills to account for and organisations’ economic, environmental and social impacts. Students who successfully complete this module will be also able to analyse the sustainability performance of an organisation and recommend how the organisation can improve its sustainability performance.
