as tools in addressing economic, commercial, social and environmental problems.


Instructions

Group task
You will be allocated to a group of three students who, in module 5.2 (week 10) and module 6.1
(week 11) will prepare a short written scenario that describes one ethical or sustainability issue
facing an organisation of your choice. A framework for writing the scenario will be provided in class,
and available later as an online resource in Blackboard.

Individual task
You will then use the group scenario to prepare an individual report.
The scenario report will take the form of a business case, made to the senior management of the
organisation, recommending how the issue should be dealt with. The report will employ either
stakeholder theory or values management as an analytical tool.

1. Executive summary
Morality is a set of ethical values and standards that guide the behaviour. The moral values and standards in all societies are different. Morality grows in a social context. Business ethics means “taking the right path”. Ethical behaviour takes into account all the factors of the business. This report highlights ethics and sustainability issues and analyzes the impact of Cafe 63's daily work experience. The report also discusses the scope of the ethical framework facing café 63 and the vocabulary for developing ethical issues. The report also includes the ability to apply various frameworks that support individuals and organizations in making decisions about complex ethical issues and the impact of economic, business, social, and environmental trends on the organization's ethical and sustainable behaviour.
2. Introduction
Almost all restaurants and hotels avoid providing a bottle of free water to every customer a
iving at the venue, avoiding wasting coffee cups. Cafe 63 serves
eakfast, dinner, lunch, and flowers. They have 34 different venues around Brisbane, each of which is licensed. It is a very famous café in Brisbane because of the good service they offer and how to promote the café. It is clear that consumer power is one of the cornerstones of corporate social responsibility. When consumers demand socially and ecologically sustainable goods, companies can obtain these goods economically, so there will be a win-win situation for corporate profits and social/environmental areas. The needs of consumers and the possibility of corporate profits are prerequisites for corporate social responsibility. It is clear that voluntary approaches to sustainable development, such as consumer choice and corporate social responsibility, can lead to many positive changes; however, there are concerns about achieving sustainable development.
3. Summary of scenario
Cafe 63 tries to advertise their car care environment with fake car grass and sell flowers at each venue, which makes the cafe look like a “green supporter”. In fact, they donate a bottle of free water (non-recyclable plastic) to each customer entering the venue. This bottle of water is free. If there is a table for 10 people, instead of 3 bottles of water for each customer, they will only give each customer 10 non-recyclable plastic bottles (Brauer, 2012). they. Most customers go to the cafe 63 after coffee or food, so it may be that the bottle of water will eventually be placed somewhere in the trash can, filled with all the water. This is a good way for the company to promote its
and, as each bottle has the logo of the Cafe 63 and a reservation for the person reading the bottle, with all the contact information. Another sustainability-related issue facing Cafe 63 is the extensive use of coffee cups. People have seen that when they sell very hot products, such as long black coffee, they even use double coffee cups, which is a huge waste of cardboard. The ethical issue facing Cafe 63 is that they sell environmentally friendly products because of the sale of their cars, cardboard made of flowers and straws, to avoid people paying attention to the waste of plastic every time they give up more than 1,000 bottles of water when customers want to take Add coffee cups every day while walking their coffee (Hummel, Schlick & Fifka, 2017).
3. Description of theory used for analysis (stakeholder theory)
Stakeholder theory described by Edward Freeman and others is an image reflecting corporate social responsibility. Shareholder theory begins in the world, not looking at the business, looking at the world, and looking at the moral responsibility there. A list of individuals and groups who are affected by the behavior of the Cafe 63 is necessary and it is necessary that the plant owner needs to be responsible for the disposal of the waste from the CSR perspective safely. In contrast, shareholder theorists initiate the people living in the neighborhood, who may be poisoned by their environment, and they have to speak about business ethics by insisting that they have the right to clean air and water (Kaspereit & Lopatta, 2014). That's why they are shareholders of Cafe 63 and their sound contribution to company decisions is also necessary. Indeed, they may not have stocks, but they have a moral necessity to participate in the decision-making process. This is a very important issue. In the least theory, people affected by Cafe's actions actually become shareholders and owners because they have been moved because of the Cafe 63, they have the right to participate in the management. However, in reality, a strict stakeholder theory, a person's insistence on giving moral claims to anyone affected by the company's...
