Case Study Review ANZ’s corporate responsibility website at www.anz.com/about-us/corporate-responsibility and answer the following questions: – What major categories of indicators does ANZ report against? – How did the bank determine these indicators (i.e. which guidelines did they use?) – What does ANZ mean by responsible banking? Q2. Weekly Forum Discussion Go to http://apps.epa.vic.gov.au/AGC/animations.html#anim-greenhouse and watch the four short animations on greenhouse, the carbon cycle, ozone layer and carbon footprint Now go to the Australian Greenhouse Calculator (AGC) at http://apps.epa.vic.gov.au/AGC/home.html and click on ‘begin’.The AGC helps you explore how your lifestyle contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. We all enjoy the benefits of modern technology such as heating and lighting, but we can do things to reduce our production of greenhouse gases and help combat climate change. Use the AGC to explore how to live more sustainably. By changing your behaviour and selecting energy-efficient options, you can reduce greenhouse gas emissions in ways that do not compromise comfort and quality of life. Work through the calculator until you have completed all screens and generated the total amount of greenhouse gases generated by your household. Choose whether you want the quick or detailed approach. Once complete, compare your households carbon emissions to that of an average Australian household. Identify the major factors that contribute to your environmental impacts. Reflect on your findings and in no more than 250 words. Q3. Case Study and Weekly Discussion Forum The report Working on the Right Shoes or ‘Stop Child Labour – School is the best place to work’ (SCL) gives an overview of the progress made in addressing child labour and other labour rights in the leather footwear sector. It focuses on what has happened in the sector and what has been done by 28 footwear companies since the launch of the campaign. The report is a follow-up of a report on the same topic published in December 2012. Read and reflect on the report available at http://www.indianet.nl/WorkingOnTheRightShoes.html. Now put yourself in the shoes of the CEOs at Wolky and Gabor respectively. How would you respond to these accusations of impropriety in your supply chain ? What actions could you implement both internally and externally to address the issues raised in the report?
