Description: Organization’s success does not only depend on its strategic repertoire within a given market, but also on how well it incorporates environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in its strategy. By engaging with peer organizations, non-governmental agencies, the media, and other external stakeholders, firms can proactively identify and address ESG issues. Consideration of ESG factors in strategy can help simultaneously achieve a long-term competitive advantage as well as enhance a firm’s social and environmental impact. The goal of this course is to provide you with analytical tools that help managers assess a firm’s broader environment and make decisions that are beneficial for the firm and for society at large.
