1.1 Making Sense of Sustainability



Business sustainability draws on knowledge from a number of disciplines including geography, engineering and of course management. To aid your learning, you will be asked to maintain a learning diary. This will allow you to explore you own ideas, awareness and perceptions of sustainability. It will also increase your awareness of sustainability and help you understand how sustainability manifests itself in different ways across businesses. It may serve to highlight ways in which you can manage your day-to-day activities in your personal and professional life in a way that promotes and encourages sustainable behaviour. Most importantly, it will generate a tangible asset for you to refer to in the future.
