Topic - Sustainability, the Triple bottom line and business.

Subject - business society and the Planet

Reflective Journal - Sustainable Business

Assessment Details

Over the first three weeks of this course, students are required to consider the sustainability-related issues and themes explored in the course and REFLECT on how these issues intersect with the world of business. These reflections are to be presented in a reflective journal, NOT a research assignment or description or summary of these themes.

These themes (including issues, challenges, concepts and approaches) MUST be discussed in terms of their relevance and/or implications for business and MUST be drawn from those raised in class presentations, discussions and activities, resources provided on the course Moodle page and/or prescribed readings. Suitable themes for reflection may include:

• Sustainability, the Triple Bottom Line & business;
• The Six Forms of Capital used by businesses;
• The six phases of business approaches to sustainability (Dunphy, Griffiths & Benn, 2003);
• Examples of businesses successfully engaging in sustainable business.

In this assessment task, students are required to demonstrate not only their understandings of the themes but also their consideration of the implications for the business sector and/or the student's current/future role in business. Students should provide their thoughts, feelings, responses, reactions, opinions and ideas on the material explored. Critical thinking should be demonstrated in these reflections.
While this task is not a research task, sources referred to in your reflections still need to be referenced using the APA referencing style. For information on the style of writing required, please refer to the samples and guides provided on the course Moodle page.
