Question:
Recognize the nature, scope and purpose of social, environmental and ethical reporting and assess the relationship between social, environmental and ethical activities and corporate performance.
 
Evaluate alternative mechanisms for social, environmental and ethical reporting and assess their impact on corporate performance.
What am I required to do in this assignment?

“Accounting, Social Responsibility and Sustainability addresses the board and complicated interactions between organizational like, civil society, inequality and environmental degradation through the lenses of accounting, accountability, responsibility and sustainability. Placing the way in which organizations are controlled and the metrics by which they are run at the heart of the analysis, this text also explores how this system opposes the very concerns of societal well-being and environmental stewardship that form the basis of civilized society” (Gray et al., 2014).

Required:
  1. Compare and contrast between Financial Accounting and Social Accounting. Evaluate the importance of Social Accounting for SME’s (10%)
  2. Critically summarize theoretical framework of social and environmental challenges in business organizations (20%)
  3. Critically evaluate how business organizations could respond to these social and environmental challenges (20%)
  4. Select any Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report and critically analyze the following points (50%)

In the main body of the CSR report, critically analyze the following points:

The main social and environmental challenges and its impact on the corporate performance

The corporate responses  and;

CSR measures and targets

What do I need to do to pass? (Threshold Expectations from UIF)
  • Analysis of the differences in financial and social accounting and evaluation of importance of social accounting for the selected company
  • To identify the social and environmental conflicts/issues faced by the selected company and its potential impact on corporate performance
  • To evaluate and compare how the selected company responded to these conflicts/issues and whether it implemented specific CSR policies
  • To evidence the evaluation drawing on quality academic and professional sources
How do I produce high quality work that merits a good grade?

Justify the selection of the case study of a company and describe their profile and its CSR policies and articulate clearly the social and environmental conflict(s) / issue(s) in which the company has been involved and how these conflicts potentially affected the company’s performance.

Students should select one case study of a company that offers the prospect of insightful analysis of the CSR of the company.

Assignments attracting the highest marks will be focused, analytical and evidenced thoroughly. Presented professionally, make sure your submission is discursive, and analytical throughout and draw on a good range of quality academic sources – especially up to date academic journals - not spurious web-based sources. You should reference properly throughout.

You will attract marks for good, critical analysis.  Organize your work and communicate professionally. Please ensure your submission is all your own work. Do not rely on internet searches.  Do not use ‘essay’ sites.

In summary, to achieve the highest marks you will need to clearly describe, evaluate and critically analyze.  The assignment needs focus and to provide a clear narrative, which is argued and evidenced well.  It is not enough to present a series of facts, discoveries and description - however well researched.  Try to generate good academic discussion and avoid presenting findings as a series of bullet points.  You will need to go further than just describing what has been happening in Corporate Social Responsibility field.

How does assignment relate to what we are doing in scheduled sessions?

The assignment will enhance your understanding of the relationship between corporate performance and the social, environmental impact of business activities and will encourage you to integrate the CSR variable in the decision-making process.

How will my assignment be marked?

Your assignment will be marked according to the threshold expectations and the criteria on the following page.
