What should be considered from the company here is “legislation in areas such as employment, competition and health & safety, future legislation changes, changes in laws, trading policies, and the regulatory bodies.” (Kralj, D. 2009) Finally, the last factor in the PESTLE analysis is the environment factor, which represents the most important factor in this research paper. The economic factor covers the weather, climate and geographical status of the country in which a company is to establish its business. Nonetheless, the economic factors also include waste management, recycling laws and regulation in addition to environmental organizations and their status with respect to the society and the
Being aware of the unhealthy methods we greedily enact at the expense of the Earth, I mindfully recycle and reduce the consumption of non-eco friendly items. Furthermore, I am aware of the negatives we cause for the greater good of people and the global economy, so I try to contribute back to the environment to help what I know is being hurt. For example, when I shop for my groceries at Publix, I always opt for the reusable grocery bags over the plastic bags; or when I go to Starbucks I bring my reusable cup which is much more environmentally friendly to use than constantly throwing away the paper cups. In return, Starbucks rewards me with a $0.10 cup discount which promotes me to be more ecologically aware and continue making positive environmental changes. This is another promotion to the idea of not just sitting and abiding to the suffering of others for our greater good.
Companies are seen to engage in green-washing due to poor environmental performance and positive communication regarding their environmental performance. However, it takes a shorter time frame for companies to react to the communications about their environmental performance than for a firm to change its environmental performance. Companies should thus increase the transparency of their environmental performance. This would be done in a bid to reduce the incentives to positively communicate about environmental performance thereby mitigating the incidence of
ABSTRACT Care for the environment has gradually become monumental responsibility among countries of the world. This goal is of utmost significance for achieving ‘sustainable consumption’, ‘sustainable communities’ ‘sustainable future’, and ‘sustainable world’. Thus, this study presents a sociological analysis of the impacts of environmental pollution with the motive to provide practical information on the rising neighborhood risks affecting sustainable development in Lagos metropolis, Nigeria. Also, to empirically showcase the culture of coping with pollution that is absent in contemporary study. The study adopts descriptive survey design in which questionnaire and in-depth interviews are methods used for data collection while data analysis was carried out using descriptive statistics and content analysis.
Remaining responsible is vastly important to any organization. Many strategic plans will alter some of the organization’s policies, procedures, and practices. When conducting the environmental scan, management must collect information for the company to understand what is and what is not ethical. According to Wheelen & Hunger (2010), Riordan’s ethical responsibilities “are to follow the beliefs and behavior of the organization in society.” As a plastic manufacture, society expects Riordan to use recycled plastic to help protect the environment. By using up older water bottled, Riordan can help protect the environment by not polluting the environment by producing more.
INTRODUCTION Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 was formulated mainly referring to the British Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 that includes general duty for workers. The OSHA 1994 was made to considering the fact that the Factories and Machinery Act 1967 only covered occupational safety and health in the manufacturing, mining, and construction industries. The OSH regulations impose an expected penalty that is positively related to the presence of risky working conditions for workers not in compliance with the standards. Safety and health system is based on the principle of assessing the risks and managing them sensibly, encouraging the workers to focus their energy more on the significant hazards that can cause
In this paper we are going to concentrate on techniques that focus on the environment around which Barclays operates, the competitors and the strengths/weaknesses of the enterprise. The methods used will, therefore, be SWOT analysis, Porters Five analysis, and PEST analysis (Warner, 2010, pp. 28-168). PEST Analysis Changes in the market can either be autonomous in that Barclays cannot control them or variable where Barclays can control their scope. PEST analysis is an environmental analysis technique.
Thereafter eco-efficiency theory was then developed by the World Business Council for Sustainable development in 1991 during which they attempt to define it as a delivery of competitively priced goods and services that would satisfy human needs while reducing ecological impacts and resource intensity throughout the product's life-cycle to a level that is at least in line with the carrying capacity of the earth. They further identified reduction in material intensity, energy intensity, dispersion of toxic substances, enhancement of recyclability, maximization of renewable resources, service intensity, and the extension of product durability as the seven elements of eco-efficiency that provides guidance and direction on how businesses around the world can be eco-efficient. Thus a reduction in the negative impact of production activities on the environment will increase the value of eco-efficiency level of the
BAPACO faces environmental contaminations problems because of the level of chlorine substances and heavy metals in the mill (Oanh and Bengtsson, 1995). In order to make the new paper mill more environmentally sustainable, it need a better waste treatment plant to decrease the level of toxicity and look for possibility to not use Chlorine in the production
Household waste is something that we cannot get enough with neither get away from it and it has become crucial day by day especially in developing country. Thus, it is compulsory to have household waste management in our country. This paper discusses how household waste in Malaysia can be converted into vermicompost for use in plantations and agriculture as one of the solution of the household waste and also focussing on environmental protection. Moreover, vermicompost may reduce the amount of organic waste in the country and help to maintain a clean and fresh environment. It also can reduce emission of methane gas which causes global warming and greenhouse effect.
