Environment and Management

Environmental managers deal with the causes of and potential solutions to energy-related issues and environmental problems from a business-management and economic point of view.

Environment and Management is a specialisation in the Bachelor of Science in Energy and Environmental Technology degree programme

Business-related environmental economics shows the correlations between environmental pollution caused by a company and the respective company's economic success. Not only should environmental laws and intra-company environmental objectives be implemented in a cost-efficient way – ecological aspects should specifically be used as competitive advantages.

Energy and environmental technology engineers, therefore, find interesting applications and development opportunities, e.g. with regard to ecological product design and marketing, international supply chain management and sustainable investments.

Within the framework of economic approaches, the impact on natural resources should be reduced in the long-term by means of environmental laws and market-oriented tools introduced by environmental policies. Engineers working in the energy and environment sector can achieve important ecological objectives by developing and implementing emission-allowance concepts and devising a way of implementing environmental standards in a cost-efficient manner.

Teaching for the Environment and Management specialisation takes place in both Brugg and Olten and is managed by the FHNW School of Business.

"In the specialisation "Environment and Management" I learn to focus not only on technology but also on the resource efficiency of a company. I have learned methods of how to use resources efficiently in a company and at the same time achieve a financial advantage for the company".
