Superfund is the name given to the environmental program established to address abandoned hazardous waste sites. It is also the name of the fund established by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980. This law was put in place due to the discovery of toxic waste dumps such as Love Canal and Times Beach in the 1970s. It allows the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to clean up these sites and to hold responsible parties accountable to conduct cleanups or reimburse the government for EPA lead cleanups.

Finally, it will conclude that Royal Dutch Shell should invest in Sakhalin II and analyse ways to mitigate the risks of investment. The primary factors for the oil and gas industry internationally are the administrative, geographic and economic distance, between producers and locations (see appendix). From an administrative perspective, involvement of local authorities tends to be high. Integrated oil and gas is a large employer, vital to national security, controls of natural resources and has high sunk costs. However, developing countries mostly utilize their endowment to stimulate foreign direct investment (FDI), knowledge transfer and the local labour market, whereas developed nations tend to focus on national security and sustainable development.

Second, recent research has begun to examine spillover effects that extend beyond the direct costs and beneﬁts of the supplier contract. Using survey data of 116 ﬁrms in the industrials, health care, and information technology industries, the results conﬁrm our hypotheses and show that supplier product integration decelerates time-to-market while supplier process integration accelerates time-to-market. The results also show a positive relationship between supplier integration and the adoption of external technologies, which either decelerates or accelerates time-to-market depending on the level of internal exploration activities. Our research, thus, helps to open the ‘black-box’ of the relationship between supplier integration and time-to-market, and provides a theoretically grounded explanation to the apparent contradictory results in prior research about
Hong Kong As An Example－How Location Functions In Business Xiaofu Liu 1254139 Introduction Location has been the basis of international business as the geographic differences generates the gaps of natural resources, convenience of traffic, the prosperity of the neighbourhood, cost of labour and rent, which implies that geography differentiates economic and business systems between nations(Basil,1989). It functions as a force spinning the wheel of demand and supply because of the inequality of production and resources. Advanced traffic tools and increasingly sophisticated network are accelerating the speed we connect, however, the amplification of location’s importance ensues as well. Inspite of extra costs, Internationalisation enables countries and enterprises to not only obtain what they need but lack or something will consume them much energy and money, but also make profit with the ownership of specific advantages including cheap labor, huge demand market, franchises and cutting-edge technology and assets . As in this essay, I aim to discuss the importance of location where international companies are settled(on both advantageous and disadvantageous sides), and how they(especially transnational companies) survive from the competition in terms of location, I will start with a brief case of Hong Kong and subsequently analylise the factors of those MNEs and countries take advanteges to maxmise their profitability.
