Sustainability and Risk in Operations & Supply Chain

100 Points. Due 3/7 at 11:59 pm.

You have been assigned a company on this list.
(https://seattleu.instructure.com/courses/1601545/files/67902432/download?download_frd=1) If you want to
switch with someone, that’s fine, just one company per person and from this list. I’m trying to expose
everyone to other companies outside of our Pacific Northwest region.

Here’s a couple of samples
(https://seattleu.instructure.com/courses/1601545/files/67913353/download?download_frd=1) .

Read their most recent citizenship / social responsibility report and communicate the primary
social-, environmental-, and supply chain-related initiatives—as they relate to the firm’s operations
and supply chain—underway in the company and the relevant performance outcomes of these
initiatives (if they are available). Your final deliverable will be entered into the Sustainability Risk
Report Template (https://seattleu.instructure.com/courses/1601545/files/67672906/download?
download_frd=1) . (https://seattleu.instructure.com/courses/1601545/files/67672874/download?
download_frd=1) As a foil to the company’s self-reported information, spend some time researching what
other organizations (e.g., press and NGOs…with cited sources!) have to say about the company’s
activities, checking to see if they are engaged in potentially harmful activities not mentioned in their
report (Do the other voices corroborate or contradict what the company has said about their own
actions?). Finally, comment on your personal reactions to the report and other voices. Pasting images in
the bottom three rows of the table can help to explain/support your text entries.

INSTRUCTIONS:

The rows on the template (https://seattleu.instructure.com/courses/1601545/files/67672906/download?
download_frd=1) are the same as below. Entries should not be entire paragraphs! Use the descriptions
below. [NOTE: the environmental and social issues should have an operations-related connection. For

example, company philanthropy, while a good thing for a community, is not something that is related to
the Inputs>>Transformation Process>>Outputs model we’ve been using.]

Images pasted–perhaps of graphics from the report–into your table will earn more points than reports
without them.

ENVIRONMENTAL elements/issues/initiatives

Identify three primary initiatives the organization is reporting that address most important
ENVIRONMENTAL issues facing the company. DON’T FORGET TO UPDATE WITH THE
PROGRESS/OUTCOMES TOWARDS THE INITIATIVES.
The issues should be related to operations and can address inputs, the transformation
process, or outputs (e.g., waste, emissions, etc.).

When possible, do identify the quantitative benefits/results of the initiatives (e.g., tons of
emissions saved, water saved, etc.).

SOCIAL elements/issues/initiatives

Identify three initiatives the organization is reporting that addresses an important SOCIAL issue
facing the company. DON’T FORGET TO UPDATE WITH THE PROGRESS/OUTCOMES
TOWARDS THE INITIATIVES.
Initiatives addressing social issues in the workplace are likely candidates here (e.g., workplace
safety, child labor). Customer issues (e.g., reducing magnetic exposure from mobile phones) may be
included as well.

When possible, do identify the quantitative benefits/results of the initiatives (e.g., worker injuries
reduced).

SUPPLY CHAIN elements/issues/initiatives

Identify three initiatives the organization is reporting that address important SOCIAL or
ENVIRONMENTAL issues that are in their SUPPLY CHAIN. DON’T FORGET TO UPDATE WITH
THE PROGRESS/OUTCOMES TOWARDS THE INITIATIVES.
If not outlined in the report, research and address how COVID-19 has impacted the company’s
supply chain. Include comment, if available, on what the company has disclosed changes in supply
chain strategy post COVID-19.

OTHER VOICES: Consider what other organizations (NGOs, press, etc.) are saying about the company
and its actions, including perspectives that might differ from the one presented in the organization’s
report. Be careful about using unsubstantiated information (e.g., statements from blogs). Please include
links to your sources / citations.

PERSONAL REACTION: Share your thoughts about the company after reading their report. Did your
feelings about the firm change after reading the report? Why or why not? Did it change after reading
other voices of the firm? Why do you think the firm published this report, in its current form? What
surprised you?
