In the 21st century successful businesses include an environmental platform in their business strategies. Chief Executive Officers have to consider carbon footprints, sustainable practices, global climate change, and waste management. These are environmentally sensitive issues which have resulted in an increase of environmental legislation.


In addition, some of the business activities required knowledge of the environment. In the aquaculture industry, for example, biological knowledge is required to raise fishes, prawns, algae and other crops. But there is no substitute for a good business plan. This degree provides you with a thorough knowledge of environmental science and management principles and practices.
