The ambiguity established through the M-Audit and CR are amongst the key problems encountered with Nike’s voluntary auditing system, which make it inefficient at measuring positive changes in working conditions in the long-run. For sustained improvements to be implemented in Nike’s global supply chain factories, an institutionalized downstream pressure must be implemented. NGOs’ creation of guidelines is important to guarantee uniformed labour standards across countries and states. However, without combined pressure from the State, the guidelines remain as advices. Henceforth, NGOs and States must collaborate in exerting increased pressure to Nike.
We live in a depleting world. Although thoughts and awareness are being put in effort to save it, there are still reluctant demand and greed from people, who would want to acquire as much resource as possible for their personal benefits. Human’s greed lead to unsolvable problems both environmentally and politically. As natural resources are getting limited every day, it strongly affects not only to the people, but also to plants and animals. The consequences lead to creating higher risk of extinction, which means there will no longer be that specific species exist on earth forever.
Garret Hardin’s “Tragedy of the Commons” is an article that identifies the nation’s current problems and predicaments that can’t be resolved through the use of technical solutions. Hardin’s work heavily focuses on overpopulation, a prominent and unceasing issue that significantly distorts and affects the stability of the Earth and the abundance of the planet’s resources. In his article, he mentioned some reasonable and important solutions to overpopulation, but he also explained its downside and how the said solutions may not be ideal and practical. “Tragedy of the Commons” revealed that the human population will continue to flourish and how it will be greatly detrimental to our society unless individuals get the education that they need and
Introduction Climate change has been a controversial topic related to the intergenerational justice and ethics as it is said that we are consuming too much at the expense of the future generations. The greenhouse gases are the result of the usage of the non-renewable energy sources. In such, there are several scholars pointed out the morality under the intergenerational justice theory, saying that the use of the non-renewable resources should be abolished. This essay attempts to investigate how much we should do for our next generations. It will firstly define the key term of intergenerational justice, then move on to a summary of two important readings of the issue.
Because of supplier lack of financial support and was to close operation, therefore the destruction can be critical and serious on an organization’s supply chain. Therefore, an organization must plan solution and strategy to manage and control their risks which can reduce the negative impact of disruptions. Although global supply chain organization contain a lot of opportunities to gain and increase the benefits of return of investment, but we can observe that risks could not be escaped
As in most cases, it is impossible to gather all the information for the components spelled out in the SLA framework. Some elements of these components embedded in the SLA framework have to be ignored in order to meet priorities within the given circumstances of the assessment. Based on this assertion, it is fairly unlikely to capture all the issues or elements of these components of sustainable livelihoods in such a study site – Khanh Hoa Province, if wide range of data is to be gathered for analysis. It is because climate change is a slow process that takes place over a long period of time. Thus local people may not be able to answer clearly, for instance, when you ask questions about ocean acidification.
Abstract - This work in progress presents some initial findings concerning the use of gamification and persuasive technology in the domain of reaching a set sustainability goal by using persuasive systems. Both gamification and persuasive technology have become more pervasive elements in the research community in the domain of human-computer interaction (HCI) and information systems. I argue a need for research addressing the design of these systems since we currently have a vague understanding of the underlying mechanism. Sustainability is genuinely complex and the designer of a persuasive system with a set sustainability goal must consider numerous parameters when designing the artefact. INTRODUCTION We live in an uncertain world today with
Nowadays, the world faces copious amounts of unsustainable trends. The fact that these unsustainable trends can cause harm to the people and the world we are living in, several international organizations towards seeking ways for solving these problems by devising programs such as Agenda21, Kyoto Protocol, Millennium Development Goals, Paris Agreement, and so on. In this essay, I will focus on the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs), and how we can participate and make SDGs a reality. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, aimed at ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring that all people can enjoy peace and prosperity. These 17 goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace, and justice among other priorities.
Why do you need to know about environmental sustainability in your personal life, and how it impacts you personally? I feel that the on-going issue with draught has been a problem in our country both socially and economically due to the fact that it puts financial strain in our economy merely because it affects the whole country, because water is a basic need not only to the country but to the world and the projects that are implemented to help tackle the draught issue are very costly and require a lot of work to maintain them both physically and financially, and I feel that it also affects the economy because it causes an inflation in food prices which is affected by the lack of staple food like maize and other affected crops, and in my personal opinion the issue of draught has not only crippled South Africa, but other countries across Southern Africa
There was ecological status of out of which had been evolved in the news in the recent years. The greenhouse is being affected, the exhaustion of natural sources, the lessening biodiversity and the phenomenal rate of species elimination all point out that the status is not as sound as it ought to be. The term sustainable development was initially presented in the Bruntland report, made by the World Commission on Environment and Development in 1987, and the definition thus offered is : ''to satisfy the needs of the current generation in such a way as not to endanger the satisfaction of the needs of future generations and the development of future generations." The important conduits of sustainable development are peace, human rights and effective governance. There are high levels of violence and insecurity which has been a destructive impact on the development
