Gap Analysis To provide quality products at a fair price to the Riordan customers, Riordan will have to be smart regarding how they operate their facilities.

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).

Disposal techniques such as burning and using dumpsites only push the environment further down the drain (Logomasini, 1); since such waste disposal methods bring about environmental concerns as well. Governments have recycling directives in place but companies and individuals are still having the liberty to recycle the waste on their own, and this is where the government directives get overlooked. Disposing biodegradable waste is not as challenging as other waste that naturally decomposes leaving organic benefits to the environment. That being the case, therefore, it means that non-biodegradable waste poses a massive challenge to conservation efforts making it essential to come up with an effective and comprehensive recycling mechanism. This exploratory argumentative paper will delve deep into the case of why recycling the non0biodegradeable waste should be made mandatory by the government for all private individuals and corporate entities to comply with.
