Task: You are required to write a paper of around 3,500 words (excluding references and appendices) in response to the following question:
“The process and tools of environmental* analysis are of enormous value to a fast-paced and rapidly-changing industry such as renewable energy.”
To what extent do you agree with this statement? You should use relevant industry cases/examples to illustrate your argument, showing evidence of the following:
a) The way in which environmental analysis can be applied to the renewable energy industry;
b) The benefits this offers to organisations in the renewable energy industry;
c) How a lack of consideration of environmental contingencies has caused problems for organisations in the renewable energy industry.
With regard to a) and b), examples based upon your own application of these techniques to industry examples would be particularly appropriate.
