UC Davis GSM Management 290 (Summer). Sustainable Business Ventures. The upheaval in the global oil market over the last half decade has been unprecedented. Rising fuel costs and volatility of the oil market can have negative impacts on venture profitability, if firms do not have strategies to deal with such risks. Global climate change and sustainability is another challenge that is increasingly impacting businesses. Energy sustainability as a business goal extends beyond "green" products but encompasses a set of complex values that can be expressed in a multitude of ways. Sustainable development broadly defined ensures that economic and social activity can meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Governments, businesses, civil society and individuals all have a role in promoting sustainability.

This course will introduce students to the inner workings of the oil and gas industry and the geopolitical and economic influences that affect energy pricing and the associated environmental externalities of the oil and gas business. Students will learn about the various strategies, tools, and financial products that are available to help business managers reduce their business' exposure to fuel price risks and to address carbon emissions limitations. Topics will include case studies on corporate responses to the potential "carbon bubble"; sustainability metrics; gyrating jet fuel prices and integrating energy efficiency and renewable energy into fuel strategies.

Yale School of Forestry and Environment, F & ES748b. Emerging Issues in US Energy Policy Energy has long been a major factor in the formulation of national security, foreign policy and domestic economic strategies as well as a driving force in the exercise of national power and general international discourse. Oil is frequently linked to war, civil and ethnic violence, terrorism, environmental damage and social justice, and climate change. As new energy sources emerge in the United States and pressures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions intensify, large energy consuming countries like the United States are struggling to improve their national energy policy in the broader context of international relations and domestic economic policy.

This course will look in depth at how energy security challenges have evolved since the 1970s oil crises and consider the elements to creating a successful US national energy strategic plan that is comprehensive and takes into account changing geopolitical and technological trends such as the advancement of solar and other forms of alternative energy, the shale oil and gas revolution, the use of an "energy weapon" in international discourse and the Arab Spring.

UC Davis GSM Management 413. Sustainable Venturing. Sustainability as a business goal extends beyond "green" production and encompasses a set of complex values that can be expressed in a multitude of ways. Sustainable development broadly defined insures that economic and social activity can meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Governments, businesses, civil society and individuals all have a role in promoting sustainability.

This course will introduce students to sustainability goals, indicators, values, measurement techniques and practices in how it applies to large and small enterprises. Students explore the connections between energy, environmental justice and poverty and the implications for sustainability, the role of technology, policy and business. Through this prism we will investigate opportunities in energy and sustainability venturing.

UC Davis GSM Management 413 -001. Sustainable Business Ventures: Energy 2, Markets and Prices. The upheaval in the global oil market over the last half decade has been unprecedented. Rising fuel costs and volatility of the oil market can have negative impacts on venture profitability, if firms do not have strategies to deal with such risks. According to a 2012 survey by the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council, 41 percent of small businesses report that they had altered hiring plans and 22 percent report reducing employee hours due to high energy costs. Even for many larger businesses, fuel price costs can be a major determinant in cash flow conditions, providing an incentive to hedge commodity price risk.

This course will introduce students to the forces - both geopolitical and economic-- that influence energy pricing in the short and medium term and investigate the tools and strategies that exist to reduce exposure to that risk. Students will gain an understanding of how to assess the factors that make up the building blocks for oil price forecasting and to evaluate differences among various publicly available forecasts. This course will also familiarize students with the terminology and operation of various strategies, tools and financial products that are available to help business managers reduce their business's exposure to fuel price risks.
