9.0 From Theory to Practice - Contemporary Case Studies in Sustainability



The previous eight sessions have attempted to demonstrate why, what and how businesses are focusing on when it comes to corporate sustainability. This session adopts a slightly different format, demonstrating how much of the earlier discussions translate in practice. Three ‘real life’ case studies are presented, each focusing on slightly different aspects of corporate sustainability. You are asked to read and reflect on each case before answering the questions by creating entries in your Learning Diary. Each case should take approximately 30-45 minutes and you are asked to restrict your entries to no more than 200 words. Worry less about solving the problems, use the cases more as a source of learning about what companies are doing to embrace sustainability.
