The course is designed to provide an appreciation of how current and future environmental policies and regulations can impact business and adversely affect profitability. It is shown that environmental awareness not only assists in the early identification and management of such risks but also reveals potential business opportunities that arise from changes in legislation. New legislation places environmental responsibilities on both businesses and individuals.
