Corporate Social Responsibility- Coca-Cola

1) Company Overview: An overview of the company’s history, products/services, markets, size, geographic scope of sales and operations, and general financial performance. Be sure to provide enough financial figures to give a reasonable overview of well the company is doing economically. 2) Mission and Values Statements – a summary or copy of the company’s mission and values statements, and of any separate statements of social/ethical goals or values. These can be copied verbatim and either included in the body of the paper, or attached as an Appendix. If you take the latter approach, be sure to clearly indicate in the paper where these can be found in the document. 3) Policies and Programs Policies or programs that the company has announced for addressing social issues; these are often given identifying names, and frequently will be accompanied in the social report by lists of goals or metrics that the company has established. Be sure to look well beyond philanthropic contributions in this section; failing to do so is a common error that student teams have made. 4) Internal Decision Making Processes: Include any information you can find on the internal decision making processes that the company has used regarding these issue. For example, is social and ethical performance left up to unit managers, are policy decisions driven from the top by the CEO and/or the board of directors, or do employees have a lot of input? Has the company developed structural mechanisms to guide its decision making on social and ethical issues, such as creating a CSR and/or ethics officer, a CSR committee of the board, a sustainability department, etc.? 5) Legal/Regulatory Violations Provide a summary of the company’s legal/regulatory violations in recent years, along with details on fines or other legal judgments taken against the company or its top managers. 6) Five Most Significant Social and Ethical Issues Facing the Company in the Future Briefly describe the five most significant social or ethical issues (including environmental issues) that you believe the company may have to manage over the next five years, along with your explanation of why each of these issues may be important to the company. Please don’t just think about issues that the company has already had to deal with, but try to identify some issues that haven’t posed a problem for them yet but may in the future. I will give you feedback on these and suggest which of these might be a particularly good issue to choose for the subject of the Issue Analysis paper, and which ones you should avoid.
