Thanks to UC Irvine Extension and its Sustainability Leadership certificate program, more than 60 professionals have joined the green movement and are championing the environmental imperative in business. The two-year-old program provides an interdisciplinary focus aimed at integrating sustainable development and environmentalism into management strategy, as well as achieving an understanding of regulatory trends and fostering a sense of corporate responsibility. Its goal: to change the way Orange County companies and government agencies implement sustainability. Courses include Energy and Climate Change Strategies for Business; Legal Developments Concerning the Environment and Climate Change; and Principles of Finance: People, Planet and Project Determinations. All program content is reviewed by an advisory board of top industry experts. Each course is taught by professionals already working within the green-collar sector, and they share real-life experiences that enrich the education offerings. Students who complete this program end up with more than an education – they’re armed with the tools that will help them effect change in the community.
