Sustainability and Corporate Practices:Does the organization consider CSR as obligatory or do they seek  opportunities for CSR? In other words, is the organization reactive or  proactive?

Sustainability and Corporate Practices

This assignment gives you an opportunity to practice  your newly developed skills in assessing the sustainability of a  company. In a statement of its business policies, British Petroleum (BP)  asserted that “A good business should be both competitively successful  and a force for good.”

However, moving from a general statement to  implementation of positive corporate practices that advance  sustainability is challenging and progress is often incremental.

Using the module readings, the Argosy University online  library resources, and the Internet, research Corporate Social  Responsibility (CSR) at BP. Provide your evaluation of how successful BP  has been at achieving its goals of CSR.

Cover the following in your analysis:

  • What is the relationship between business operations and CSR at BP?
  • Does the organization consider CSR as obligatory or do they seek  opportunities for CSR? In other words, is the organization reactive or  proactive?
  • What are some elements of corporate culture and policies that impact  CSR? Examine the policies of BP such as the stated environmental  policy, cultural diversity policy, equal employment opportunity (EEO),  and so on.

By the due date assigned, post your response to the Discussion Area. Through the end of the module, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses.

Write your initial response in 300–500 words. Your response should be  thorough and address all components of the discussion question in  detail, include citations of all sources, where needed, according to the  APA Style, and demonstrate accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation
Do the following when responding to your peers:

  • Read your peers’ answers.
