· Rationale for the introduction of the module :

Climate change became in important aspect of our life. Pollution stems mainly from production and supply chain management. The aim of this module is to study governments' regulation, firms’ behaviour when facing this regulation and voluntary actions undertaken by firms. We will analyze both theoretically and empirically the results of regulations. However the empirical approach will be privileged. Elements of green supply chain will be provided.

Educational aims:

Specific knowledge
This course aims to equip students with a knowledge and understanding of the way engineers world is impacted by economic policies and economics problems and ways to solve them, both theory and practice based. It further seeks to develop a range of skills for the critical use of that understanding.

General knowledge
By participating and engaging fully in this module, students should be better able to engage in abstract thinking by relating potentially unrelated issues and putting them into one big picture of complex systems. Student should be able to propose several alternatives of problem solving and decision-making. Students should be able to engage in critical thinking to enhance problem solving and decision-making skills. They should be able to plan and manage their time effectively in relation to deadlines whilst displaying individual initiative and enterprise. Students are expected to conduct individual and team work assignments and perform effectively in a group environment by demonstrating leadership and team-building qualities. Students should be capable of demonstrating a logical argument and be able to gather and analyze available data on public policy issues and evaluate alternative measures on the basis of objective reasoning. Students should be able to communicate and present complex arguments in oral and written form with clarity and succinctness.
