Unit 4.6 Corporate Social Responsibility
For Management Pathway
To succeed in this unit, you are required to complete two assignments. You must ensure that you cover all the assessment criteria for this unit over the two assignments as indicated.
You work for a well-known sports manufacturer. Your company has recently received a lot of bad publicity because of investigations and reports in the press about human rights and conditions for workers in factories used by the company. Workers have reported abuse, low wages and poor physical working environments. The company manufactures in Mexico, China, Taiwan and South Korea. There is a code of conduct for suppliers but no means of ensuring it is adhered to. This issue has caused the company to consider other corporate social responsibility (CSR) issues such as carbon neutrality and recycling. It has become apparent to senior managers that a CSR policy is needed but the Board must be convinced of this. You have been asked to put together a persuasive case for introducing a CSR policy, which the senior management team will consider at their next meeting before producing a final draft for the Board.
