L the
Who is making the decision?
The decision making is in two steps where Lars, the CEO will make decision on the
ideal solution to the problem. The board will then review and decide whether the
recommended solution is the ideal one.
Whose interests should be considered?
Decision-maker?Owners?Customers?Employees?Suppliers? Local community?
Global community? Future generations? The non-human environment?
The interests to be considered include those of the suppliers, local community,
future generation and the non-human environment. The suppliers concern is the
distribution costs of shipping back the exhausted products. The local communities
are likely to be affected by any environmental issue that might arise from the
construction of the recycling plant. These impacts may also affect the non-human
environment and the future generation.
Ethical Considerations
1. Self-interest:Psychological or ethical egoism? Cooperation dilemmas?
Ethical egoisim, the company is attempting to comply with the law and regulation
while catering for the environment and as well consider the cost implications in their
own interest.
2. Direct
Utilitarianism:Aggregation?Maximization?Happiness?Pleasure/pain?Preference-
satisfaction? Informed preferences? Willingness to pay?Financial cost-benefit
analysis?
This falls under the willingness to pay and financial cost-benefit analysis. The firm is
willing to cater for the recycling cost including the distribution and cost of building
and running a recycling plant. The cost-benefit analysis is in the essence that the
company is split between constructing it in the Homeland where labour and health
care is expensive; as opposed to Awayland where labour and health are cheaper but
the distribution cost is high.
3. Indirect Utilitarianism:Rules?Policies?Regulations?Rights or virtues that maximize
happiness?

Rules, policies and regulations. The company is responding to a change in law
regulation that requires electronic manufacturers to take full responsibility of
recycling exhausted products.
4. General Rights and Duties: Property rights? Self-ownership Rights? Liberties?
Autonomy rights? Human Rights? Privacy rights? Kantian duties? Harm principle?
Human rights and harm principle applies in this case. People have rights to live a
healthy life. Thus, any decision should incorporate the health rights of the residents
in the area where the recycling plant will be constructed. The government action to
push manufacturers to take the responsibility of either disposing or recycling the
exhausted products is in the interest of protecting the rights of others.
5. Specific Rights and Duties: Contracts?Promises? Legitimate expectations?
Fiduciary Duties?
Legitimate expectation. The new regulation is set to address the needs of the society
against the needs of a single individual. Pollution affects everyone and in the rule of
natural justice, the person benefiting from the manufacturer and sales should also
take the responsibility of caring for the environment.
6. Justice:Retributive?Compensatory?Formal, fair, and structural equality of
opportunity?Marginal contribution? Libertarian? Indirect utilitarian? Equality of
resources or welfare?Difference principle?
The case is under compensatory in the sense that the firm is working towards
reducing the negative impacts that are brought about by their use. Even upon
construction, if the company will be relocated to Awayland, then it will need to
improve the health facilities in the host nation.
7. Virtue Ethics: Individual virtues/vices? Obligations of community
membership?Corporate character?
The firm being a member of the community ought to work hard to ensure that they
address the concerns of the residents. In this case, pollution from the exhausted
product was a major concern until the government intervened with a new set of
regulations.
