Essay 1
In the 2001 Australian film The Bank, a bank CEO has hold of research suggesting with
certainty that a massive stock market crash is about to occur. Rather than publicise the advice
he suggests the bank take advantage and make a massive profit out of the crash. When a board
member suggests they have a duty to the public to release the information, he replies he only
cares about the shareholders – “They are our people. They are our ‘society’. The public can
take care of themselves.” (The Guardian, 5 Fe
uary, 2019)
Using the shareholder and stakeholder frameworks and the key concepts from the session on
ethics, law and morality

Essay 2
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) stress the necessity of private businesses’ active
participation, appealing for their creativity and innovation to create value for the common good,
such as reducing poverty, eradicating hunger, and protecting biodiversity. Recent research
eveals that company’s involvement in SDGs is largely symbolic and intentional, rather than
substantive [van der Waal, J. W., & Thijssens, T XXXXXXXXXXCorporate involvement in Sustainable
Development Goals: Exploring the te
itory. Journal of Cleaner Production, 252, 1-11.].
Using the theories relating to corporate social responsibility and your understanding of United

Essay 2
Introduction
    The importance of the sustainable development of the companies has come under the shade of light due to the past records of ups and down in the economic condition of the country. The necessity of establishing and developing a business in the way that it can support several strata of the society have become the concern for many country and the leaders of major companies. In this assignment through a case study provided the justification of the sustainable development be focused. To justify it in more effective manner the usage of the theories related to the CSR and the agenda of the UN on sustainable development is employed. Lastly, the ways is stated with the help of which the sustainable development goals can be promoted within the organization.
Discussion
Theories related Corporate Social Responsibility
    The corporate social responsibility is the way the management of the business engages different models to deals with the social structure of the areas in the most careful manner. The basic idea of the models engaged by the management is to run the business, which is socially accountable, to their shareholders and to their stakeholders (Frynas & Yamahaki, 2016). The concept of the CSR can be well farmed and understood by the support of the theories related to the CSR.
1. The stakeholder theory, it is the direct competitive theory related to the shareholder value theory. The theory emphasis on the fact that the stakeholders of the companies have the vital role to play and needs not to be treated in the poor way. The ethical relationship with the stakeholders is to be maintained in an improved way by the management of the company as it outnumbered the shareholders (Frynas & Yamahaki, 2019). Similarly, the focus of this theory is on the social aspects that the management ought to consider rather than the corporate ideologies.
2. The business ethics theory, the theory focus on the ethical ideologies of the social responsibility that the business needs to incorporates. The moral and the social obligation of this theory is sub divided into three inte
elated ethical aspects. The first part is to identify problems and changes the certain variants for the betterment of the social problems. The encouragement of the universal social principles such as the encouraging social justice, human rights etc. are the second aspects of this theory. The employees of the companies are to be trained in the way it can provide changes in the social structure in the positive ways. With these three interlinked philanthropic ideologies, the CSR of the company deals with (De Roeck & Maon, 2018).
United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development
    The United Nation is the international platform for the political and the social discussion incorporates the major economies as well as the developing and the underdeveloped economies. The sustainable development of the business is the major criteria with the help of which the development of the nation in the different sector is possible (Desa, 2016). The major polices related to the sustainable development of the business has been adapted by the UN to encourage the global economy. The 17 major goals have been taken under consideration for the developing the state of the people, plant and prosperity. The agenda of the UN itself invokes the ideas according to which the importance of the stimulation of the social and the environmental factors for the overall factors is highly important. The social and the environmental factor has a large impact on the growth of the business thus ensuring the safe and the better usage of the two is the main focus of the UN directives resolved in the year 2015. The goals of the sustainable development also incorporate and reflect the integrated approaches for the government and the business to ensure the social responsibility along with the economic and the environmental responsibility is well met by the management (Rosa, 2017).
The issues regarding the Sustainable Development Goal as per the case study
    The case study that is provided to complete the assignment is showing the truth of majority of the companies who are keeping the CSR model as mere model in the paper work and only working for their own interest and development. The prime factor of the sustainable development as studied is the ideology the management follows to ensure the safe and the secure way of doing the business (Guija
o & Poyatos, 2018). The corporate social responsibility is also the ideology that is comprehended in the impact of the company on the society. As suggested in the case study when the CSR or the sustainable development is the mere structure that is present in the company and not an effective one, it is a major problem. As per the theories of the corporate social responsibility suggested the stakeholders plays a vital role in the company thus the prime focuser of the management to retain their business needs to focus on the stakeholders as well.
    However, when the same is remains in the mere documents and not in the substantive form, the problems starts to arise. The stakeholders consist of the employees, customers, the supply chain management and so on. When the company fails to give attention to their development, the overall developmental structure reduces into ruins (Salvia, Leal Filho, Brandli & Griebeler, 2019). Moreover when the stakeholders are ill-treated or not given their deserved value the company tends to lose their stakeholders and resulting in the creation of the huge void in the place. Thus, it is importance to have a substantive idea of the CSR and not only in the symbolic manner. Similarly, the maintenance of the ethics in the business plays a vital role in the growth of the company. The social and the environmental aspects are much required to be responsible and ethically dealt with.
    When the misuse of both begins, results can be harsh. For example, the most renowned Sta
ucks can be also termed were the coffee giant. It is responsible for serving millions of people, all around the world in the most effective way and growing its market in every now and then. The engagement of the company in maintaining of the CSR and the goal of maintaining the sustainable development is the beneficial factor for it. The ethical and socially responsible plantation as well as giving importance to the stakeholders by the company...
