Week 6 Discussions and Required Resources

Part 1 and Part 2 must be at least 150 – 200 words unless otherwise noted. Please read all attachments and follow all instructions.

Part 1: Claims to Environmental Friendliness

After reading The Seven Sins – http://sinsofgreenwashing.com/findings/the-seven-sins/index.html, discuss the tension between business’s interests in maximizing profits and the public’s interest in receiving complete, truthful, and non-misleading information about products that they purchase. From a business perspective, what are the dangers of greenwashing? If you were a marketing executive, would you have a policy against greenwashing? Why or why not?

Part 2: Environmental Statutes

Visit the Small Business Administration’s Environmental Regulations page – https://www.sba.gov/business-guide/manage-your-business/stay-legally-compliant and visit the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Laws & Regulations page – https://www.epa.gov/laws-regulations.

Identify one environmental law that is relevant to your past, current, or future employer. Apply that law to a business situation created by that employer. How does (or did) that employer maintain compliance with that statute? Do you believe that environmental regulations help or hinder business? Why, or why not?
