Further Information from Glen Toner syllabus below

Part I of the course will focus on the theory of sustainable development and sustainable production. The goal is to provide students with a solid conceptual grounding in the principle of sustainable development and an understanding of the ways in which it is influencing industrial policy in the early 21st Century. Core concepts and ideas will be addressed and critiqued. Various innovative policy instruments and the role and influence of national and international organizations will be assessed. Individual articles will be introduced and critiqued by students. Part I will culminate in a mid-term take home exam. Policy analysis is the disciplined application of intellect to public problems. Part II is designed to develop students’ primary research skills through student-led case studies. The case studies will explore the evolving, innovative sustainable production practice of leading firms and organizations in key industrial sectors. Teams will develop an analytical framework for understanding sustainable production which will highlight key drivers and opportunities, as well as challenges and barriers that influence innovation. Teams will then apply the analytical framework to developments in an industrial sector such as, inter alia, food/agriculture, transportation, energy, construction/housing, ICT, pulp and paper/forestry, mining, manufacturing, finance, biotechnology/biofuels, sports/entertainment/recreation, fishing/aquaculture.
