An introduction to sustainable engineering principles and the social, economic and political context in which they have arisen, and in which they are implemented. It introduces methods, techniques and tools used by public and private sector sustainability managers to implement sustainable engineering principles in organisations, regions, projects and processes. Sustainability assessment techniques are introduced that can be applied at a product level (Life Cycle Assessment), at a corporate and regional level (Materials Flow Analysis) and at a regional and national level (Environmental Footprint and Input-Output Analysis). The course will introduce principles of Industrial Ecology (IE) and the preparation of Environmental Impact Statements (EIS), Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and Environmental Reports (ER).
