PowerPointPowerPoint Assignment
Now that you’ve learned about the functional areas of the company through your internship and the company’s focus on teamwork and problem solving, your manager would like you to lead an effort to select a CSR issue that the company can adopt and champion over time. You’ve impressed others with your work so far. This is a significant vote of confidence from your manager and an opportunity for visibility from the CEO and even external audiences.
For this assignment, you will:
· Research the CSR efforts of your chosen company.
· Choose a specific current issue that can be addressed with sustainable solutions.
· Prepare a short presentation to leadership about the chosen issue and present some sustainable problem-solving actions that the company could take as part of a new CSR campaign.
· Is the company support for the issue financial or is there also a volunteer element?
· How are employees engaged in the financial or volunteer activities? Are customers able to contribute financially and through volunteering?
· How is the solution that the company supports sustainable?
· How does the issue tie to the company’s mission and vision?
· Select a CSR issue to research. Possible topics include:
· Workplace diversity, hiring, and equity.
· Reducing the carbon footprint.
· Clean energy.
· Water stewardship.
· Climate change.

· Topic: Water stewardship.
· Problem: Children’s access to clean drinking water.
· Possible solutions: Dig safe wells for local and international communities, support UNICEF clean water project, or contribute bottled water to FEMA for natural disasters.
· Relates to business: Water is a key ingredient for the product, and the organization has factories in the same states where children need clean drinking water.

Resilient companies avoid making
corporate social responsibility (CSR) an
add-on to their regular operations.

Accounting for stakeholder interests
should be integral to a company’s
transformation efforts (Kaplan, 2020).

In the context of its entry into the
European electric vehicle (EV) market,
Tesla’s key strength is its core purpose—
its exclusive focus on sustainable energy
(Tesla, 2021).

Other automakers are mainly
manufacturers of conventional cars and
manufacture EVs to meet government
regulations. Tesla, on the other hand,
does not manufacture conventional cars.

The Problem

The CSR Issue Tesla’s Business

• Europe has been facing a severe

energy crisis.

• Increasing energy costs impact

consumers and small businesses.

Driving the mission of transition to

sustainable energy in Europe

Impact of the


Energy Crisis

Impact on low-income households in the
European Union (EU)

 Low-income households in the EU are
unable to afford energy bills and pay
proportionately more for energy (Right
to Energy Coalition, n.d.).

 Energy poverty is expected to rise in
the EU, making energy a social justice
issue (Right to Energy Coalition, n.d.).

Impact on Germany

 The electricity prices in Germany are
among the highest in Europe (Appunn,
2022), with the poorest paying
proportionally more (Wehrmann, 2022).

 The German economy’s reliance on
Russian gas makes it particularly
vulnerable (Chazan et al., 2022).

Advantages and Limitations of Possible


Possible Solution Advantages Disadvantages

Sell power directly to low-

income households

Is feasible and can provide relief to

impacted households

May not be profitable for


Set up virtual power plants


Is feasible and sustainable for local

communities as well as for Tesla

May face competition

from local energy


Carry out product donation in

worst-hit areas

Is impactful when the crisis is

localized and offers a sense of

purpose to employees

May not be profitable for

Tesla and may not impact






Setting up VPPs in
Germany and impacted EU

 Aligns strongly with Tesla’s sustainable energy goals

 Bridges the affordability gap that keeps average

consumers from purchasing Tesla’s products

 Could play a crucial role in accelerating decarbonization


 Could help build clean energy ecosystems that boost the

use of Tesla products to their full potential

 Provides a viable solution to the energy crisis

 Could strengthen brand image and improve

shareholders’ market valuation

Sustainability of the CSR Solution

 Tesla’s VPP in South Australia has established the model as a sustainable clean

energy solution that can be scaled up.

 VPPs provide energy security and
