Bp Case

...| 1. Based on the history of the company, why did BP get involved in so much questionable conduct? BP's history extends back to 1901 when William D'Arcy's Anglo-Persian Oil Company first drilled for oil in Persia and after seven years of drilling and darcy's nearly spent his net worth finally oil spewed out and became rich. Unfortunately later at 1914 BP was on the verge of bankruptcy due to the very low demand of oil in global market. Accordingly ,BP's Board strategy focused for decades on selling and making profits by expanding and increasing their market shares and they have neglected BP responsibilities with respect to human and environmental resources in their Mission statements and Corporate goals . Below is part of their new mission statement and underlined parts emphasize how BP have changed their way of thinking and realized how social responsibility and environment are important to their business especially after several disasters that occurred to them last decade.

We help the world meet its growing need for heat, light and mobility. We strive to do that by producing energy that is affordable, secure and doesn’t damage the environment.

Bp Oil Spill

...BP OIL SPILL Under the Deepwater Horizon, an offshore drilling ring of British Petroleum (BP) caused an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The incident occurred on April 20th 2010, where equipment failed and caused the explosion sinking the ring, and causing the death of 11 workers and more than 17 workers injured. The British based energy company also faced other problems at the site of the oil spill. More than 40 million gallons (estimated data) of oil spewed into the Gulf of Mexico. Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a very serious threat for the wildlife as it causes water pollution. The oil spill effected many coastal areas in the US, like the Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida. The oil spill disaster strongly damaged wildlife cycle in the Gulf of Mexico, and many species were thrown into extinction. Similarly, thousands of businesses were thrown into extinction. Many people has questioned the ethical decisions and core value system that BP used to cut corners with the accident; namely, the race to maximize profits at all costs. We are all aware that one of the main causes that let to the disaster were the result of bad decisions, in which a less expensive option (whether to run a test or use a particular kind casing pipe, for example) would save lives. There has been “zero dollars spent on research concerning how to handle oil spills for off-shore drilling by BP despite the company's NET profits - above and beyond all salaries, bonuses, or overhead costs- of...

Bp Oil Spill

...   Since April of 2010, BP Oil Company has been working to repair the damages of an oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. According to Do Something, an environmental website, have reported the death and injury of 28, more than 8,000 animals dead within six months, and 16,000 miles of coastline pollution (11 Facts about the BP Oil Spill). Many accounts blame this catastrophe on BP’s neglect to properly build and maintain machinery. Several clean up workers and fisherman have been affected due to this oil spill (Reed 35). People living near the coast line has been affected due to polluted air and water. Many children had been sick and they had problem breathing fresh air. BP’s ways of “cutting corners” are a point of interest when considering the factors leading to the Deep-water Horizon Oil Spill. There were several issues with this oil spill: professional issues, ethics and new technology issues, legal, regulatory and political, safety issues, and environmental issues. If BP would have taken care of all these issues there had been no oil spill. According to the official federal report, BP’s management cut corners in many areas, especially during the installation of the drill. While drilling the drill pipe got stuck and the engineering had to redesign the parameters but completely cut corners to drill the fastest way possible, which was the start of BP’s problems. Events leading up to the Deepwater Horizon incident led one to question the values and motives of the British......

...New Hire Communication: JetBlue Airways Magda de la Matta November 24, 2014 COMM/295 Business Communications Professor George Beaini Crafting effective messages is an important part of business, and is a skill that requires constant honing. As Bovee and Thill discuss in their book Business Communication Today (2011), the three steps of the writing process are planning, writing, and completing. This paper will describe the process of writing a message to flight attendants who are being hired at JetBlue Airways, and are awaiting information about Flight Attendant Training. Planning The first step in planning a business message is defining the purpose and profile of your audience. It would be foolhardy to jump directly into the writing itself, because the information needs to first be organized; without taking the time to analyze, the writing process is slower, and excessive wordiness and potentially embarrassing text is more likely (Bovee & Thill, 2011). Define the Purpose The purpose of any business message must be carefully defined. Is the purpose worthwhile and realistic, acceptable to the organization, timed well, and understandable to the audience (Bovee & Thill, 2011)? Is it to persuade, collaborate with, or inform the audience? These are important questions to consider when shaping the business message, to ensure that it is necessary, appropriate, and clearly defines what the audience should do upon receiving the message. ...

Bp Ethics Case

...When asking someone about the top 3 oil companies in the world, it is almost always certain that BP will be named on that person’s list, accompanied by Exxon and Shell. The oil company is such a huge and necessary industry that our country depends on day in and day out. Governments and companies have all looked into different types of alternative energy but there are still none that are near as effective as oil. Oil is a highly flammable, high combustion, fuel that gives high effectiveness. The problem with oil is that it is messy, in many different ways, when burned it sends damaging emissions into our atmosphere, when leaked it kills basically anything in it’s path from animals to plants. The riskiness of oil has caused an uproar around the world recently with the recent “going green phase” and environmentally friendly movement. These largely point towards oil because oil when burned sends large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, which does damage to our atmosphere and lets in more Gama radiation from the sun, which heats up the Earth. This causes a large problem for oil companies and their initiative to make money. In this case we will be focusing on BP, a very well known company if not the most well known. The largest problem with BP is, most of us when hearing that name think straight to April, 2010 when a BP oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico leaking out millions of gallons of petroleum. For a company and it’s stakeholders, this is one thing that you don’t want......

Hire Purchase

...The issue is whether Luna wants to know the protection available for hirers and guarantors of a hire purchase agreement and she also want to know her rights if there is any misrepresentation made by owner or dealer in negotiations leading to the hire purchase agreement. Part III of Hire Purchase Act lays down various warranties and conditions which seek to protect hirers and guarantors. The basic difference between a breach of warranty and breach of condition are breach of conditions is a serious breach and it goes to the root of the contract, thus entitling the party not in breach to repudiate the contract and sue for damages. Breach of warranties is less serious breach which does not entitled the party not in breach to repudiate the contract bit to sue for damages only. Owner shall have good title to pass. The owner shall have the right to sell the goods at the time when the property is to pass. Second, merchantable quality in Section 7 (2) of HPA is there is an implied condition that the goods are of merchantable quality except if falls under the following situations which are where the hirer has examined the goods or a sample as regards to defects which examination bought to have revealed or if the goods are second hand goods and the agreement contains a statement to the effect that the goods are second hand and all conditions and warranties as to quality are expressly negative and the owner proves that the hirer has acknowledge in writing that the statement was......

They have lost focus of their duty to the environment, the public, and its shareholders. 1) SWOT analysis Strengths-they have alot of money that can be reinvested in enhancing/repairing their image and focusing on the environment, their connections (with the British government and Navy), alternative energy (wind, solar, biofuels), infrastructure, carbon footprint toolkit, they were the first energy company to acknowledge global warming/environmental awareness Weaknesses-image, oil spills, poor ethics (price gouging,wire/mail fraud, etc.) Opportunities-technological opportunities (alternative energies, improved drilling capabilities, jumping onto the environmentally sustainable movement-and is also a threat to their original business model) Threats-politics (policies/regulations), economics (supply and demand fluctuation, improved commodities markets), competition, natural disasters 2) Problem Analysis (this should be clear and to the point-a few sentences is all that is necessary): Their image is tarnished, so they are concentrating on rebuilding this. They started this process by changing their name from British Petroleum to simply BP (Beyond Petroleum-suggesting that they will focus their efforts on multiple energy sources).

Hire Purchase

...Hire Purchase Loan Understanding the Statutory Rebate on Terms Charges (Hire Purchase Act 1967) It is impossible for the hirer of a hire purchase loan to check the amount of statutory rebate he is entitled to because the calculation formula is not mentioned in the hire purchase agreement. Also, the description of the formula in the Hire Purchase Act 1967 is almost incomprehensible to the common man. The hirer is entitled to a statutory rebate for terms charges and unexpired insurance. The statutory rebate for terms charges is calculated using a formula derived from section 2(1) of the Act. Simplified, the formula is as below: I  X | (N) (N+1) | | (T) (T+1) | Where: I = amount of interest charged N = number of installments still to go T = total number of installments in the agreement * Car Purchase Price: RM100,000 * Deposit: RM10,000 * Loan Amount: RM90,000 * Interest: 10% (flat term charge) Let’s take a hypothetical example: Sarala has to pay a total of 60 instalments in a hire purchase agreement and she is charged an interest amount of RM45,000 (total interest for 5 yrs/60 months) for the whole period. She has already paid up 12 instalments before she decided to complete the purchase — early settlement. The statutory rebate for terms charges she is entitled to is: RM45,000 x (48) (48+1)/(60) (60+1) = RM28,918.10 Conclusion Indeed, the Rule of 78 was used in Indiana since 1935. It is commonly accepted and still widely used to calculate the......
