Everyone, from individual consumers to corporate decision makers, is talking about sustainability, going green, and reducing the carbon footprint. However, some companies' efforts are more "greenwashing" than truly intended for the well-being of the environment. Greenwashing is what companies do (e.g., promotional efforts) to make themselves look more environmentally friendly than they really are. For the CUTCO Corporation, however, the plan is not for a "go-green project" or to engage in "greenwashing." Rather, the company is instilling "going green" initiatives that, like the
Changing to bio degradable paint pots – Chic Paints Limited’s decision not to change to ultra-green bio degradable paint pots, would have a lasting effect on the environment as the current paint pots used would take so much longer to dispose when they go to be recycled, whereas the new proposed bio degradable pots would shave years off the carbon footprint that is being left by Chic Paints Limited as they would degrade up to 95% biologically after they have been finished with, that wouldn’t just cut down the carbon footprint left by Chic Paints Limited, but also the same goes for the trade customers that buy the paints from Chic Paints
What is Scholfield Honda's primary ethical responsibility in situations where a proposed green initiative is cost-prohibitive or even detrimental to the company's bottom line? The main responsibility here was to his company, to make sure that it remained financially stable. The “Green” effort was secondary to his ethical responsibility.

We already solved some of the problem by recycling and composting but there’s still a huge amount of garbage. We can cut don’t our garbage by producing products that can be recyclable or can be put in a green bin. In the future I hope they can invent something that will eliminate garbage for once and for all. The reasons why we should eliminate those things are because our world would be a cleaner place. If we don’t stop Global warming our world is going to die and all the living beings in the world will perish with it.
We have learned that modern biological technology in high school and got to know the safety of GM foods. However, Martin Evans, a Nobel Prize winner in Physiology in 2007, said the belief that transgenic technology is safe is not entirely founded and any conclusion should be based on testing results. (Evans, p.8) From my perspective, even if GM foods might lead to some troubles with our health, people should accept them to be produced. Otherwise, it must be a barrier to the developing of human race. Another reason for me to support GM foods is why GM foods are always more nutritious and even more delicious than normal conventional foods.
Corporate environmentalism has the potential to improve the sustainability of organisations in modern times through improving the status, legitimacy and profitability of organisations. However recent criticism from environmental groups claiming companies are ‘merely window dressing’ and not ‘making any radical attempt to minimize their environmental impact’ has sparked debate over whether the true motives of large scaled firms is still profit maximisation (Whiteman and Cooper 2000).
