Task: Prepare a consultancy report based on the case study information

You are required to assess and evaluate the sustainability of the organization`s supply chain and produce a comprehensive consultancy report (3000 words) that analyzes, investigates, proposes potential solutions, and concludes. Utilize course materials to develop content that aligns with a corporate sustainability report. This report should not be a simple question-and-answer format but rather a structured analysis incorporating the following content outline.

Analysis

  • Define and apply a suitable sustainability framework strategy (e.g., ISO14001, PDCA, triple bottom line) to facilitate the company`s transition to net zero.
  • Conduct a detailed analysis of the company`s challenges and their environmental impacts.
  • Assess the company`s overall environmental footprint, potentially using a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
