The Unit V Course Project is the culmination of the course project that began in Unit II. The first portion (Unit II submission) of the course project involved a life cycle analysis (LCA). The second portion (Unit III) was a pollution prevention (P2) audit. This third and final portion (Unit V) examines the impact of corporate philosophy on P2 in an industrial setting.
The Unit V Course Project requirement is to use the same product that you researched in Units II and III to address the tasks below.
- Appraise the importance of upper management’s commitment to P2.
- Explore the value of corporate philosophy on P2 in production of your product.
You must utilize information in the course textbook and at least one peer-reviewed article from the CSU Online Library. In your paper, limit the amount of direct quotations. The vast majority of your paper should contain paraphrased information from your sources and should include your own thoughts on the role of corporate philosophy to P2. This portion of your project should be at least two pages in length.
Course Project Submission
Since the course project is cumulative and this is the final portion of the project, please organize your paper as instructed below. Section headings should be APA Level 1 headings (centered, bold). The sections of the paper are listed below.
- Title page
- Introduction (One or two paragraphs)
- Life Cycle Analysis (two-page minimum)
- Pollution Prevention Audit (two-page minimum)
- Corporate Philosophy (two-page minimum)
- Conclusion (One or two paragraphs)
- References page
Please make changes to your LCA and P2 audit sections per your professor’s Unit II and III feedback before submitting your final course project. Do not include a title page and references page for each section. Since this is a final report, only one title page and one references section should be used. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed.

This unit emphasizes the importance of corporate philosophy and upper-management support of pollution prevention (P2), particularly if additional employees need to be hired to run a P2 program. Do your work experiences support the view that upper-management support is crucial? If you do not have experience in P2 programs, how important is upper-management support to other initiatives within companies for which you have worked? You can also discuss the question if you have military, organizational, or other types of experiences that are not necessarily corporate.
