Abstract:
Scientists blame growing industrialisation as the biggest cause for climate change. However, companies like Wal-Mart, Toyota, GE, BP, Alcoa, DuPont, Caterpillar, etc., are greening their businesses more than ever. Their green initiatives include CSR, sustainability and ethical retailing. But all these raises hard questions. Do CSR initiatives fit into a business strategy? Are regulations and innovations viable or are they forced on companies?

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss how retail companies green their businesses to combat global warming and climate change
  • To discuss challenges in ethical retailing
  • To discuss how CSR and sustainable development initiatives turn out to be competitive advantage.
