Analysis of company’s CSR and Business Ethics

MGT4150 Management in a Globalised World Coursework: Analysis of company’s CSR and Business Ethics A) Assignment Background As part of its “Grow Campaign” Oxfam has developed a scorecard referred to as “Behind the Brands” which focusses on companies in the food sector. The aim of the scorecard is to “generate a ‘race to the top’ among the Big Ten [food companies] to improve their policies across seven themes that impact upon food security”.1 Oxfam believes that by encouraging this race to the top among these major brand name companies it will help to reduce the “negative social and environmental impacts across agricultural supply chains”.2 It has selected 10 of the major companies in the food sector (based on their global revenues and their Forbes 2000 annual ranking) that have operations in non-OECD countries (as well as in Mexico and Chile). The ten companies listed in order of size are: Nestle; PepsiCo; Unilever; Mondelez; Coca-Cola; Mars; Danone; Associated British Foods (ABF); General Mills; and Kellogg’s. The strategy is based on the assumption that: “across the world, consumers are seeking to make choices in line with their values and are also looking to find out more about the companies whose brands they buy.”3 The companies are assessed based on the following seven themes, each of which is weighted equally: 1. Transparency at a corporate level 
 2. Women farm workers and small-scale producers in the supply chain 
 3. Workers on farms in the supply chain 
 4. Farmers (small-scale) growing the commodities 
 5. Land, both rights and access to land and sustainable use of it 
 6. Water, both rights and access to water resources and sustainable use of it 
 7. Climate, both relating to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping farmers 
adapt to climate change4
