Summative Assessment

Summative Assessment 1: Portfolio Research Submission deadline: Week 6 4th March 2022 (before – 23:59 pm) Worth 40% TMM Length 2,000 words +/- 10% Format This is individual research in which students are required to develop (in-class) a research portfolio (each step in the development of your portfolio will be worth 10%) that is comprised of a well sustained critical analysis of the level of human and ecological sustainability in existing companies (minimum three, maximum five companies) within a selected industry. Throughout your portfolio you will reflectively support your critical analysis with reference to theoretical structures and concepts that are based upon discussions within the module and your own independent research. INDICATIVE STRUCTURE: 1. An introduction and some definitions of relevant sustainability concepts generally and in the context of business. Description of the sector/industry under which your chosen companies are located. What are the main sustainability issues in the sector? 2. The case studies: here, you will identify a minimum of three, but not more than five cases/companies in the sector critically overviewed above. Describe the companies, and their operation, with key statistics. What is the level of sustainability awareness/maturity in these companies? This can be demonstrated by critically analysing the level of sustainability that exists in these companies (human and ecological). What has been the impact of these sustainability practices/initiatives being on the community where the companies are located, including the companies’ employees and the environment in general? You must leverage appropriate concepts and theories discussed during lectures, seminars, and through independent research, in your critical analysis. 3. A reflective analysis of how the development of the portfolio has contributed to the student’s own understanding of sustainability as a concept and the potential opportunities for businesses. 4. Concluding remark: here you will write a relevant set of final remarks, and ideally looking at the challenges and opportunities for enabling sustainability in business.
