Case 1

Midlands Science in Partnership with Integra LifeSciences

Midlands Science is a not-for-profit development company, which works to create greater interest in STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths] education and skills among students, teachers and members of the public in the four counties of the Midlands [Laois, Offaly, Longford and Westmeath]. Midlands Science values education, continuous learning and up-skilling as key building blocks for sustainable regional development. In collaboration with partners from the private, public and community sectors, Midlands Science is committed to facilitating and delivering a number of targeted annual education initiatives in the Midlands. This work enables Midlands Science to reach 13,000 people directly per annum at events and workshops.

Integra LifeSciences, a world leader in medical technology with 19 manufacturing plants worldwide is dedicated to limiting uncertainty for surgeons, so they can concentrate on providing the best patient care. Integra offers innovative solutions in orthopaedic extremity surgery, neurosurgery, and reconstructive and general surgery. Integra has an enduring tradition of giving back. Part of Integra’s CSR Strategy is to create an awareness of science & technology skills and careers among students and teachers, by actively supporting positive STEM experiences in the Midlands.

At Integra all employees are encouraged to make a difference in the communities in which they live and work and to extend their caring to meaningful causes across the globe. Integra’s local partnership with Midlands Science has enabled the company to facilitate the organization and delivery of hands-on workshops in local primary and secondary schools during the Midlands Science Festival, which is held annually during national Science Week.

QA Compliance Specialist at Integra LifeSciences Ireland Ltd, Maria Rogers said, ‘Industry needs diversity and alternative thinkers in order to continue to develop new concepts and products. In Ireland we need to maintain our reputation as a high skills destination in order to remain an attractive destination for global industry and research funds. We need to nurture and develop the scientific brains of our future generation in a fun and meaningful way and the Midlands Science Festival schools programme is an effective way to do this.’

The Midlands Science Festival is a seminal week-long event that promotes and celebrates the importance of science and technology across all age groups in the region. It is a carefully planned programme which showcases science in a variety of different ways, attracts large and diverse audiences and receives extensive media coverage. This exciting and innovative festival provides approximately 130 different science education outreach events and activities. The work of Midlands Science has been independently and positively evaluated by Behaviour & Attitudes Ltd and the Edinburgh Science Festival and was found to be impactful, creative and innovative. Midlands Science use evaluation to measure impact but also to adjust programmes as necessary in order to achieve maximum impact and benefit.

John O’ Donovan, ‎Plant Manager at Integra LifeSciences Ireland Ltd commented, ‘Integra is very pleased to partner with Midlands Science as a corporate sponsor in order to provide hands-on, interactive science events to some of our local primary schools. Science surrounds us in ways that we don’t often think, and we need to do all we can to ensure that young people understand the importance and significance of science in day to day life. The Midlands Science Festival creates many opportunities for people of all ages to connect with and celebrate science and Integra was delighted to be a part of this for 2017.’

Case 2

Don’t swim in the black sea

Mansoor is the manager of the Black Sea Manufacturing Company (“BSMC”) in Mangalia, Romania.  Mangalia is a small town on the coast of the Black Sea.  BSMC employs 1000 people, which is about ½ of the population of the small town of Mangalia, Romania. Mansoor has a good relationship with his boss, Ali, who lives and works for BSMC’s headquarters in Dubai.

BSMC water emissions (waste coming out of the factory into the Black Sea) at Mansoor’s factory were consistently over the acceptable pollution guidelines set by the town of Mangalia. Several months ago, Mansoor got a call from his boss Ali, who told him that the town had started fining BSMC a large sum of money every month due to the water pollution being too high.  

Mansoor admitted that the water pollution was a continual problem, but because headquarters would not invest in new technology to clean the waste before it is dumped into the Black Sea, he didn’t know how to solve the pollution problem.  Ali told Mansoor that the only way the company could afford the new technology was to fire 250 of the workers at Mansoor’s factory.  Ali pointed out to Mansoor that other factories in Mangalia were in worse shape than BSMC and somehow, they were meeting the town’s pollution standards.  Ali said that the company could not afford to be fined every month for these violations.  Mansoor assured Ali that he would look into the matter.

Mansoor immediately called the other manufacturing factories in Mangalia.  He learned they were scheduling their heavy emissions work (work that produced a lot of pollution) at night so that during the day when the town took did their water pollution test readings, their factory pollution levels were within standards.  

Six months went by, BSMC was paying large fines every month, and Mansoor still had not found a good solution.  Finally, Mansoor spoke with the Bulgaria government and was told that Bulgaria does not have as strict of water pollution laws as Romania.  The Bulgarian representative invited Mansoor to relocate the Black Sea factory to Kavarna, Bulgaria, which is only 45 kilometers south of the current location of the factory, and also on the Black Sea.  The current employees could drive back and forth across the border to the new factory every day.  However, the Bulgarian government requires that at least 50% of the workers in Black Sea’s factory be Bulgarian citizens.  

Ali told Mansoor he had only one week to decide what to do or he would lose his job.

  1. Identify two (2)ethical choices Mansoor must make.
  2. Suggest minimum of two solutions to the ethical problem.  (Please think outside the box.)
