Once a business has established a sustainability program, developing “green” products through sustainable product innovation can be an important next step.
In this course, students will learn the principles of sustainable product innovation by using life cycle assessment to compare the environmental sustainability of selected products and determining why one product is/is not better from an environmental standpoint than another. Students will also learn how to develop environmental advertising claims for “green” products.
To enable students to compare and defend the environmental sustainability of products, lectures will be given on recent “green” innovations from various industries, principles of life cycle assessment, regulations governing sustainability claims, consumer attitudes toward sustainability, etc.
