    The course covers the following topics:

    • Aims and objectives in environmental decision making

    • Characteristics of environmental leadership

    • Strategies and options for environmental stewardship

    • Development of global visions on environmental crisis and sustainable development

    • Green management, corporate governance and environmental governance

    • Globalization of business and contemporary environmental stewardship

    • Environmental leadership and decision making -- the mainland China way

    • Case studies in environmental leadership: Europe, America, SE Asia, Hong Kong and mainland China

    • Strategies for effective environmental management, with particular reference to Hong Kong and the greater Pearl River Delta

    • Green enterprises and environmental entrepreneurs in the contemporary world
