Outreach

Our past events have attracted positive media interest and were successful in promoting the MDIIM and the Desautels Faculty of Management

Teaching

In Fall 2014, the Desautels Faculty of Management will offer a Bachelor of Commerce with a Major in Managing for Sustainability. Managing for Sustainability (39 credits) is designed for students who wish to combine managerial and business knowledge with a solid understanding of the interlinked economic, social and ecological challenges of achieving sustainability. It integrates management studies with fundamentals of environmental science and sustainability, and is offered in collaboration with the McGill School of Environment and the Department of Geography.

About Us

The Sustainability Initiative is the mechanism through which the MDIIM formally integrates elements of sustainability into the Desautels Faculty's teaching, research, and research activities.

The Sustainability Initiative

Sustainability is a societal ideal and criterion for development which resembles other widely accepted but conceptually challenging human goals, such as justice and freedom. Because scientific understandings of how nature functions change over time, and because value judgments are involved, it is impossible to define precise conditions for sustainability once and for all.
