i. Identify the major stakeholders that may have been adversely affected by the behaviors of the company through the lens of personnel relationships. Consider: What specifically has occurred to demonstrate corporate irresponsibility?

i. Analyze the environmental impacts affected by the policies of the company. How has this company made a positive impact on the environment? Consider giving examples of exemplary practices in the industry or related industry.
ii. Based on your analysis of the company’s impact on the environment, conclude how this company has demonstrated corporate irresponsibility.
