The “Business and Sustainable Development” course aims to provide a conceptual framework to get insights in the most relevant issues with respect to ecological and social challenges of business actors in the Northern latitudes of the globe. Mining, oil & gas extraction, forestry, tourism and traditional livelihoods just like fishery are in focus as they carry strong relevance in terms of ecological footprints and the well-being of Arctic societies. Participants will learn the major sustainability challenges of the Arctic and global economy. The 3-day course outlines pathways how to manage sustainability inside a company and what tools can be used to implement environmental management, social responsibility and corporate governance frameworks. Participants will gain a better understanding how to execute business responsibilities and what a sustainability strategy requires.
