Amcanion cyffredinol

This module explores the process of establishing a venture from idea generation to the completion of a business plan which incorporates environmental planning and management. It takes the student through the actual process of developing a business plan and its different components, the market and sustainability. The module considers how businesses (new and existing) can embrace the green economy whilst functioning as part of an economy that has historically placed very little attention on anything 'green'. Key learning themes in this module include: • Entrepreneurship • The entrepreneurial role in relation to the initiation and development of a sustainable business • Key environmental factors of business development • The differences between the entrepreneur and the environmental manager, and the problems faced by small growth firms in sustainable growth. • The importance and complexity of entrepreneurship and environmentalism within a large firm environment
