Before taking Dr. Beril Toktay’s Fall 2016 Serve-Learn-Sustain class, Introduction to Sustainable Systems, I had little knowledge on sustainability practice. I was aware of global warming but didn’t care to learn more about it. Prior to the class, I knew how carbon emissions impacted the earth but not so much about what companies were doing to reduce their carbon emissions through sustainable business practices. After taking this class, my perspective on sustainability practice changed from recognizing the impact/harm of carbon emissions on the environment to wanting to do something about sustainability whether through company action or a campaign initiative.
