The aim of this unit is to prepare you for postgraduate studies in the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics. It introduces the concept of economic, environmental and social (triple bottom line (TBL)) reporting from both a business and social perspective. The link between Triple Bottom Line reporting and the concept of sustainability is explored. The unit also examines related areas of corporate and government accountability, including corporate social responsibility and corporate ethics. You will apply advanced knowledge and skills in corporate sustainability and Triple Bottom Line to developing a sustainability framework and a reflective journal working independently and collaboratively with others from diverse intercultural backgrounds.
