This needs to be a research on a global issue (e.g. emission controls, deforestation, poverty, water shortage, biodiversity, inequality, forced displacement). You are going to identify the key approaches, debates, concepts and principles of sustainability in relation to the global issue you are investigating. With a critical perspective you will evaluate implications of this global issue for businesses. In doing so you will take into consideration different value systems, different stakeholder groups and backdrop commitments to politics and economics. You need to use proper academic sources to support your work. Your work needs to comprise: · A title in relation to a global issue you investigate · Up to 6 keywords related to your essay · Description of the global sustainability issue you will investigate · Identification of major debates, value systems, and stakeholders in relation to this global issue · Critical analysis of the implications on the business · Conclusion · References ( must have over 25) · Appendices (if necessary) Assessment Criteria (The actual assessment components for this assignment) Thoroughness of understanding of the global sustainability issue Critical evaluation of the major debates, antecedents and the consequences of this issue as well as the stakeholder groups involved in it. Critical evaluation of the implications for business from multiple viewpoints Presentation with an appropriate format, style (Harvard referencing system) and precision of writing Pass mark Postgraduate 50 Return of assessments (Instructions for return / collection of assessments) Your work will not be returned but you will receive detailed feedback on how your work is marked and how it can be improved by 29 May through Canvas. This assessment is testing Module Learning outcomes Tick if tested here LO1 appraise the multiple dimensions of sustainability for businesses in the context of global challenges ? LO2 critically review, evaluate and develop sustainability strategies of organisations Explanation of submission requirements and further guidance Do clearly state your student number when submitting work but do not indicate your name. The Business School has a policy of anonymous marking of individual assessments which applies to most modules. You should not identify yourself directly in the work you submit and you may need to use phrases such as “the author of this assignment ….”in the detail of your submission. Always keep a copy of your work. Always keep a file of working papers (containing, for instance, working notes, copied journal article and early drafts of your work, etc.) that show the development of your work and the sources you have used. You may need to show this to tutor at some point so notes should be clear and written in English. This is an important requirement. There may be circumstances where it is difficult to arrive at a mark for your work. If this is so you may be asked to submit your file within 3 working days and possibly meet with your tutor to answer questions on your submission. Assessments are subject to a word limit to ensure consistency of approach across all modules. Your work should not exceed the limit indicated (including references and excluding appendices). Do not feel that you have to “achieve” this word count in your work. What is important is that the work satisfies the stated learning outcomes which are articulated through the assessment criteria. Care is taken to ensure that work has been marked correctly. Checks are conducted by both a second lecturer and an independent expert from outside the University on batches of work. Your work will not be returned to you but you will receive detailed feedback explaining how your mark has been arrived at and how your work could have been improved upon. Always use the Harvard style referencing system. The University’s Learning Information Services have produced a series of guides covering a range of topics to support your studies and develop your academic skills including a guide to Harvard referencing Avoid academic misconduct Warning: Collusion, plagiarism and cheating are very serious offences that can result in a student being expelled from the University. The Business School has a policy of actively identifying students who engage in academic misconduct of this nature and routinely applying detection techniques including the use of sophisticated software packages. Avoid Collusion. The Business School encourages group working, however to avoid collusion always work on your own when completing individual assessments. Do not let fellow students have access to your work at any stage and do not be tempted to access the work of others. Refer to your module tutor if you do not understand or you need further guidance. Avoid Plagiarism. You must use available and relevant literature to demonstrate your knowledge of a subject, however to avoid plagiarism you must take great care to acknowledge it properly. Plagiarism is the act of stealing someone else’s work and passing it off as your own. This includes incorporating either unattributed direct quotation(s) or substantial paraphrasing from the work of another/others. For this reason it is important that you cite all the sources whose work you have drawn on and reference them fully in accordance with the Harvard referencing standard. (This includes citing any work that you may have submitted yourself previously). Extensive direct quotations in assessed work is ill advised because it represents a poor writing style, and it could lead to omission errors and a plagiarism offence could be committed accidentally. Avoid the temptation to “commission” work or to cheat in other ways. There are temptations on the internet for you to take “short cuts”. Do not be tempted to either commission work to be completed on your behalf or search for completed past academic work. When you submit your work you will be required to sign an important declaration confirming that: The submission is your own work Any material you have used has been acknowledged and appropriately referenced You have not allowed another student to have access to your work The work has not been submitted previously.
