Purpose: For this option you will be required to gather first-hand knowledge in order to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of discretionary activities taken by your firm as they relate to the domain of "corporate social and environmental responsibility." You are encouraged to become familiar with both the people and the programs directly focused on this task through interviews and reviews of available documents. It will be useful to initially trace the history, scope and development of these commitments as they relate to your organization, its stakeholders, and the specific industry in which it operates. Through your interviews and research you should carefully delineate any gaps you find between stated purposes and actual accomplishments, as well as potential ways to improve performance. Finally, you are asked to think creatively about your firm's corporate social and environmental responsibility platform as a whole, and to suggest novel ways in which it could be realistically and successfully enhanced.
Note: This option must include a one-page addendum that will serve as an appendix.
