Understanding Global Responsibility

The Things We Buy

This module looks at the impact of our purchases on people and planet. We start with the concept of sustainability and how some organisations are beginning the transition to sustainable businesses. We then consider the challenge of Net Zero in relation to the things we buy. Finally, we look at the complexity of supply chains and embedded supply chain problems and offer steps workplaces can take to become more sustainable.
