26820 Macro Sustainability Impacts

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



In complex and volatile contexts, the core purpose of organisations and their sources of value creation can be disrupted demanding a recalibration of the organisational risk appetite. This subject aims to cultivate a student’s strategic disposition to orient organisations toward generating sustainable impacts. Students develop an understanding of Corporate Sustainability, and the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) frameworks, indices and Future-fit benchmarks that guide a sustainability imperative. They develop the confidence and competencies to navigate and interpret the economic, regulatory, legislative and policy environment to identify material risks and reorient organisational purpose toward beneficial impacts. They become knowledgeable about organisations that have successfully bridged the gap to address emerging trends and risks and realise core business and broader benefits.
Essential skills are developed such as how to interpret emerging trends and develop scenario analyses, creating a genuine and inclusive dialogue with salient stakeholders and reorienting the risk management appetite to set the context for future-fit success. Studnets know how to move beyond aspirational strategic intent to a pragmatic and future-oriented blueprint for creating beneficial impacts beyond the business case.
