Your report guidance:
Note: words number was approximately allocated to each task.
- In the introduction, you are expected to introduce three subjects (150 w): [5%]
- Sustainability performance and reporting in a non-profitable organisation (20-30 w).
- Sustainability strategy at DMU (20-30 w).
- What and how the three tasks of the assignment will be achieved (100 w). For instance, firstly, this report critically analyses the sustainability performancSe and reporting practices of DMU using the latest sustainable development goals (SDGs) indicators in DMU’s environmental reports of 2013 and 2014. Specifically, it analyses the levels and patterns of, and trends in, sustainability disclosure of DMU in 2013 and 2014.
- Task one: Critically analyse the sustainability performance and reporting practices of DMU employing the latest SDGs indicators in its environmental reports of 2013 and 2014 (800 w). [35%]
The first task could be addressed as follows:
- First, introduce the UN SDG framework. Then, the SDG list of indicators can be used to examine the level of sustainability disclosure of DMU in 2013 and 2014. An item in the SDGs list of indicators (17 goals) will be given one if it was disclosed and 0 otherwise. The number of disclosed items will be divided on the total number of items within the SDG list (17). This technique is called an un-weighted content analysis technique (200 w).
- Then, you can link your results to previous studies that examined the case of sustainability reporting of the non-profitable organisation, specifically the case of universities, in order to be able to identify and discuss the level of sustainability reporting of DMU effectively. In other words, you need to be able to answer the following question. Is the level of sustainability reporting of DMU high or low as compared with other universities sustainable performance? (100 w).
- The trend in sustainability reporting of DMU should be determined throughout the study (i.e., 2013 and 2014) (100 w).
- The patterns of sustainability reporting could be identified by highlighting the main areas of sustainability performance at DMU, such as pollution, energy usage, education, among others. (300 w).
- To improve the quality of your analysis, you can cite some useful sentences from DMU’s environmental reports on the light of your findings. (100 w)
- Task 2: Using a stakeholder theoretical framework, critically assess the trends in, and patterns of, the sustainability performance and reporting of DMU. In other words, you need to determine the current trends and patterns of DMU sustainability performance, and then, critically discuss how government, local community, and civil society organisation, among others, can contribute to this trend in such a performance. Support your answer with citations from DMU’s environmental reports and relevant literature. [25%]
You can achieve this assignment as follows:
- First, it is recommended to introduce Stakeholders Theory, and how it was previously employed to interpret sustainability practices of organisations, specifically in the case of non-profitable organisations such as higher education institutions. You should demonstrate a good level of readability by citing a range of relevant academic articles (400 w).
- Second, you are recommended to highlight the main motivations underlying behind the analysed levels of sustainability reporting of DMU in the first task. For example, did DMU’s environmental reports include any information related to the drivers of their reported sustainability practices? Some of these drivers can be associative of compliance with governmental regulations, code of conduct, local community, and other universities’ sustainability performance, etc. (400 w).
- You are required to support your established arguments in this task with the most relevant citations from DMU’s environmental reports and relevant academic articles.
- Support your answer with citations from DMU’s environmental reports and relevant literature. [25%].
- You can discuss this point as follows:
- This task is reflective of your critical evaluation skills. You are therefore highly recommended to critically review the two sides of the argument (i.e., the relevancy and/or irrelevancy of sustainability to non-profitable organisations) (400 w).
- Then, try to make your voice heard by expressing your own opinions in this regard (300 to 400 w).
- Do not forget to use the appropriate references and citations from DMU’s environmental reports.
- In the conclusion section, try to summarise the results of your analysis and any expected implication based on your critical evaluation of sustainability reporting in non-profitable organisations (150 w). [5%]
- Presentation and references [5%].
