Sustainability requires us to integrate economic considerations with environmental and social factors in the short and long term. Unfortunately, traditional financial and economic techniques are often poorly equipped to do this.

This course provides an overview of key concepts in sustainable economics and finance. You’ll discuss practical tools and techniques that will aid planning and decision making in your sustainability projects. You’ll also learn new financial and economic concepts and techniques that will help you build a business case for programs with sustainability goals.
