1. You will know about how sustainability issues present both opportunities and threats to business management
2. You will have the ability to carry out individual research on a real-life issue of business sustainability and report on practical solutions to business.
What am I required to do in this assignment?
Assessment 2 develops and applies your theoretical skills to a practical case.
Building on your report for assessment 1 (Adnams) , use the case study provided to write a formal academic report to Green Business Network members to help them increase the resilience of their business to local climate change impacts. You should imagine you work for the case study business and that you are sharing your research with other members.
Make sure you discuss key terms (eg resilience, adaptation, mitigation, climate change, resource scarcity) and address both the present, and potential future, risks and opportunities for Bedfordshire businesses. Use examples to support your answer and highlight the key skills discussed in the unit that may help them. Use good sources of information and correctly reference your ideas. You will need to apply global ideas to consider impacts at a regional level so you will need to carry out research on how climate change is likely to affect the local area.
Note: You must ‘build on’ not repeat work from your first assessment. Although the case study company is the same, your purpose here is to demonstrate continued and deeper research and understanding. Resubmitted work will not be marked.
