watch those video and essay:
For this week’s essay, I’d like you to start by reading the unit on Mindtap labeled “Application and Ethics: Climate Change” (right after Chapter 25)-
Please also make sure to review the videos and readings assigned earlier this week- Then, I’d like you to respond to the following:
1) We are living in a time of an enormous threat on a planetary level- Many have said that business has the potential to play a significant-perhaps
even a leadership-role in addressing climate change- What do you think is the responsibility of businesses right now? Should they be actively trying
to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions? What about fossil fuel usage? What will you be looking for in a potential employer? Will the company’s
environmental footprint play a role in your decision to take a job? Does it play a role in the purchasing decisions you make?
2) Imagine a company is trying to decide where to locate a new factory. It could locate in the US, where labor and environmental regulations drive up
the cost of production, or locate in a developing region, where it might be able to lower the cost of production by paying workers less and lowering
environmental standards- Discuss how either of these choices might be in the “best interest” of the corporation- If you were advising the corporation
on this decision, what factors would you consider? What decision do you think you might make? Would your decision vary based on the type of
company and industry in which it operates? If so, how?
