授業の概要・目的 This course overviews the basics of climate change and global warming issues by reviewing the analyses of IEA (International Energy Agency) and UN reports. It also focuses on the international efforts by following UNFCCC documents and examine the policies, actual measures and frameworks to address the challenges, including the basic structure of emissions trading. We then will look into the meanings of the environmental challenges to business management by examining frontiers of business opportunities and the costs and benefits to cope with environmental policies. We will also study the basic ideas of sustainability and its meanings to business. We will try to obtain images of possible management strategies by looking into business communities' efforts made so far through following those frameworks initiated by UN and other institutions.
