Essentially the point of this essay is to identify issues which the company currently face and provide scenearios projected within the next 50 years for how they can improve on various areas in a sustainable manner. An example would be C02 emissions and how they plan on reducing this in future e.g increased use of solar power, substituting diesel with bio diesel etc. We also need to explore other areas such as socio political as well as environmental. https://www.anglogold.com/subwebs/informationforinvestors/reports07/reporttosociety07/files/ghgs_samerica.pdf the link above is an example of information which can be used for the essay.
The report ?Meeting the Challenge of Sustainable Business? should therefore present an overall logical argumentation for how your chosen business (AngloGold Ashanti) will have to adapt to the identified environmental limitations and the socio-political issues in future scenarios. It should provide insights into your chosen strategy for sustainable innovation and argue the business case (value creation and competitive advantage).
The aim is to demonstrate understanding of the complex and interdependent issues that business faces in terms of risks and opportunities; as well as demonstrate creative and entrepreneurial thinking to reach convincing sustainability strategies that are relevant within a global business context.
