Sustainability has been resonating within the business community and the academia. Indeed, sustainability has moved from being an ideology to a technique that guarantees business profitability. As corporate social responsibility (CSR) is expanding its frontiers to respond to continued agitation for business to treat the planet and its people with respect, sustainability is no longer optional. This research paper aims to demonstrate the curiosity of the author to develop a project in the area of sustainability and corporate governance; in particular, the correlation between sustainability and corporate governance, with the main objective of embarking on a comparative study of the sustainability approach of two companies from two continents. For this work, the author has in mind to evaluate the sustainability approaches of these companies in their supply chain management. Unlike the conventional approach, an intercontinental perspective on sustainability is rare. Therefore, the primary focus of the research will be to investigate the sustainability practices in the supply chain management of two indigenous companies (Gallagher and Dangote) from two continents. The research will adopt a qualitative method for collecting data and other relevant materials from involved parties and triangulation will be used for the analysis. This investigation could potentially identify similarities and difference in approach to sustainability, which could improve best practices for both companies. The report will highlight areas of advantage for both parties in line with current demand for business to be part of the solution to the problems surrounding people, planet, and profits. The work will conclude with a benchmark document for sustainability.

What is DUAL BOARD? What does DUAL BOARD mean? DUAL BOARD meaning - DUAL BOARD definition - DUAL BOARD explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A Dual Board or Two Tier system is a corporate structure system that consists of two separate Boards of directors that govern a corporation. The roles and relationships between the two boards vary across countries. The structure is composed of two boards, the "Management Board", and the "Supervisory Board" each of these have different roles. In Germany, the Dual Board system is prescribed for corporations that are listed on the stock market (e.g., Lufthansa, and Adidas). It is argued that this approach results in and better serves the objectives of a social market system. Using a two tier system might also result in "more monitoring" and "less aggressive performance targets". It might also be "less efficient" from a financial market perspective. It has been suggested that financial efficiency may be impeded by reduced communication, and the higher costs of running a Dual Board. The dual board system was first adopted in German companies in the 19th century, and it become compulsory after the Second World War. Other countries that adopted a two tier approach include Finland, China, and the Netherlands. The Singapore Manufacturing Federation, recently introduced a supervisory board as well. In the European Union, 10 countries require the two-tier approach, 8 countries require the single tier board approach, and 9 countries allow the use of either. The Management board meets frequently (often weekly) to deal with operational issues. Some contracting decisions and strategic planning decisions may have to be approved by the supervisory board. The Supervisory board is usually elected by the Shareholders. Composition varies across jurisdictions; its members are usually independent of the executive but it can include employee representatives in some countries. Generally, the supervisory board guides and monitors the management board. The Supervisory board may be involved in long term strategic planning. Another task that the Supervisory Board is in charge of is the selection, dismissal, and designation of the members in the Management Board, to "ensure a long term succession planning". The Management board has to closely cooperate with the Supervisory board to develop the business strategy, this is done by creating a steady flow of information between the two. The information flow would include risk management, business development and any differences of the development of the business compared to the initial plan. Open discussions between members of the boards are also key to the functionality of the business under a Dual Board management system, because these must exchange information frequently.

If you were mailing an extremely important package, you'd probably trust FedEx more than the U.S. Postal Service. But why?

Politicians in the media often talk about the private and public sectors of our economy but what's the difference? And which one is more effective? The private sector is made up of businesses or corporations owned by people. The private sector includes malls, grocery stores, and your local diner. To make a profit in the private sector, businesses must earn our money by offering us products and services that we want or need. When businesses have to compete for the same dollars, prices go down because no one wants to pay twice as much for shoes at one store if you can get the same pair cheaper at another place. On the other hand, the public sector is not supported by profits. It doesn't have to compete for our dollars. Instead, the public sector uses our tax dollars to fund its services. So we pay for these programs no matter how much or how little we use them. The government decides how our tax dollars should be spent in the public sector. This makes sense for some things. For example, you probably wouldn't want firefighters or police officers competing with one another for your business. In other cases though, this means things cost more or service is worse. The U.S. Post Office has $100 billion in debt and is regularly bailed out with taxpayer money. And the Department of Motor Vehicles isn't usually known for fast, friendly service. In contrast, private companies know that if they offer poor customer service and don't make money, they'll go out of business. When comparing the private sector with the public sector, it's clear that the market-driven private sector is more efficient. When you don't have to be profitable or accountable, things tend to be more expensive and the service is worse. So when there's a choice between a private sector or a government service, think about that package you really need delivered.

Shekhar Shah (NCAER, India) offers an interesting comparative analysis between governance for profit and non-profit organizations, highlighting the key similarities and differences. Shah's analysis covers the parallels in financial oversight, performance management, and organizational capacity building. He also argues that there are key differences in the potential for misalignment with stakeholder interests, and in the measuring of performance between these two types of organizations. Shah concludes his presentation with some valuable suggestions on how board members can be ambassadors for their organizations, and on how best to select members for a governing board. This is a workshop on think tank governance that aims to explore what corporate governance for think tanks looks like; how it differs from the governance of profit-driven organizations; and how best to structure governance to serve the interests of stakeholders. The various presenters will share good practices in institutional governance for think thanks; they'll review a range of tactics to help think tanks make the best use of their board; and they'll identify mechanisms and procedures that promote think tank accountability, internally and externally.

Beth Karlin Candidate for Ph.D. in Social Ecology Ph.D. Dissertation Defense Wednesday, April 23rd , 2014 Social Ecology I, Room 112 1:00 - 3:00 PM Residential Energy Feedback: Research, Technology, and Potential for the Informed Home Research Summary: Scientists and elected officials agree that climate change is an issue that can no longer be ignored and residential energy use is a prime target for reducing emissions, accounting for over 20% of annual emissions. One promising strategy for promoting conservation is the provision of feedback about energy use. Feedback -- the process of giving people information about their behavior to reinforce and/or change behavior--is receiving increasing attention due to changes in technology and infrastructure that allow information to be collected, processed, and sent back to consumers quickly and cheaply. Many programs and products have emerged in recent years, demonstrating political and technical potential for wide-scale provision of energy feedback. However, past work has been critiqued for its lack of theoretical rigor; many have called for more attention to the conditions under which theories are successful in explaining conservation. This research presents an interdisciplinary, mixed methods approach to understanding the role of feedback in residential energy conservation through five distinct, yet interrelated approaches: (1) literature review and integration into a new Eco-Feedback Intervention Theory (eFIT) (2) meta-analysis of past research on residential energy feedback, (3) taxonomy of energy feedback technology, (3) mixed-methods analysis of naturalistic energy feedback users, and (4) introduction and psychometric testing of a Usability Perception Scale (UPscale). As a whole, it seeks to extend what is known about energy feedback and to make suggestions for future research and practice. While there much research addressing whether feedback works, there has been little research into the more nuanced questions of how and for whom it works best. The present research aims to address this need. Biography: Beth founded and directs the Transformational Media Lab in the Center for Unconventional Security Affairs (CUSA), where she studies the psychology of leveraging new media and technology for social impact. Current projects investigate public acceptance of technology, documentary film, and digital activism. Beth has over a dozen publications in venues ranging from Peace Studies to Persuasive Technology and lectures regularly on Transformational Media and the Psychology of Sustainability. She is active in the American Psychological Association's Division 34 (Environmental Psychology), currently serving as Treasurer and Program Chair for the 2014 Convention. Beth holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology and Spanish from the University of Redlands and a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) from California State University, Long Beach. Prior to beginning her doctoral studies, she spent a decade working in K-12 education, holding positions as a teacher, counselor, curriculum consultant, and school administrator. After graduation, Beth will be staying at CUSA and working on the NSF-funded Flood RISE project, investigating the role of parcel-level flood modeling coupled with transformative communication strategies to improve flood resilience. The project aims to articulate a strategy for effectively translating climate science into actionable information to catalyze behavioral change.

http://economicsdetective.com/ Game theory is the study of human behaviour in strategic settings. It is used to solve some of the harder problems in economics. So what is a game? To have a game, you need at least two players, sometimes called agents, or, if you want to be really crazy, people. And you need payoffs for the players, you need to define the outcomes they can potentially get depending on how the game unfolds. And finally, you need rules for the game. Now, it's not always obvious how people will behave, even with players, payoffs, and rules clearly defined. That's why game theorists have a number of solution concepts for games, including the dominant strategy equilibrium, the Nash equilibrium, the subgame perfect Nash equilibrium, the Bayesian equilibrium, and the weak perfect Bayesian equilibrium. The most basic solution concept is the dominant strategy equilibrium. In a game, each player can have any number of possible strategies. One strategy strictly dominates another strategy if the player is always better off under that strategy no matter what other players do. If one strategy strictly dominates every other possible strategy a player could take, that strategy is a strictly dominant strategy. We have a dominant strategy equilibrium when all players play a strictly dominant strategy. Now let's look at the most famous game in game theory, the Prisoner's Dilemma. There are two prisoners, prisoner 1 and prisoner 2, and they each have a choice. They can testify against the other, or they can keep quiet. If they both keep quiet, they both get off with a light sentence, which I'll represent with a payoff of 2. Prisoner 1's payoff is on the left, prisoner 2's is on the right. If they both testify, they both get a moderate sentence. I'll represent the moderate sentence by a payoff of 0. Right about now, keeping quiet is looking like the best option, but there's more to this game. If one testifies and the other keeps quiet, the one who testified will get off scot free, and the one who kept quiet will get an extremely harsh sentence; they'll throw the book at him. Think about this game for a moment. Keeping quiet looks like a pretty good option if both prisoners could promise not to testify. But these prisoners only care about their own self-interest. So, both prisoners may tell the other they pinky swear not to testify, but they won't keep that promise. If prisoner 2 keeps quiet, prisoner 1 is better off testifying. If prisoner 2 testifies, prisoner 1 is better off testifying. Testifying is a dominant strategy for both players, so both testifying is the dominant strategy equilibrium. The prisoner's dilemma comes up in all sorts of situations. For instance, instead of prisoners our players could be, say, oil companies. If both set a high price they can sell for a high price, but each one has an incentive to undercut, in which case he will capture the entire market. The equilibrium outcome is for each company to charge a low price. The prisoner's dilemma isn't the only game with a dominant strategy equilibrium. Here's a more complicated one. Can you tell which strategy is dominant? It's A for player 1, and E for player 2. So the dominant strategy equilibrium is A, E.

[Go to Related Report] https://goo.gl/HdGxyQ Is performance sufficiently reflected in the turnover rate of CEOs? Analysis of statistical data reveals that the probability of CEO retention in cartel firms is relatively higher than in non-cartel firms. Accordingly, this study aims to examine the CEO turnover rate in line with performance and draw upon a policy direction for implementing a socially desirable incentive mechanism. An examination into Korean firm data reveals that, in cartel firms, the probability of CEO replacement increases as the performance of the overall industry declines. On the other hand, in non-cartel firms, the probability significantly increases as the CEO’s relative performance deteriorates compared to that of rival firms. In fact, due to the low correlation rate between relative performance and CEO replacement, CEOs of cartel firms are more inclined to collude with competing firms, rather than outperform them. Then, what efforts are needed to prevent corporate collusion? To answer this question, a comparative analysis was conducted on the board of director’s supervisory capabilities in cartel firms and non-cartel firms. The results show that, compared to non-cartel firms, the proportion of outside board members with social ties to the CEO and the probability of CEO retention is much higher in cartel firms. Further still, there are almost no dissenting votes from board members in cartel firms, and instead, the probability of member replacement increases significantly if a member opposes a board agenda. Overall, it was found that the independence and supervisory capabilities of the board of directors at cartel firms is severly lacking, which inevitably creates an environment that prolongs and retains collusion. Therefore, policies to improve corporate governance are needed to strengthen board independence and to provide CEO incentives that are more in line with relative performance, this would also curb collusion. [Interview : Hwa Ryung Lee, Fellow at KDI ] The punishment mechanism for low performance is vital in ensuring fair competition. Of course, the implementation of a CEO incentive mechanism is wholly the firm’s decision. However, it is important to create an environment that boosts the efficiency of the incentive mechanism through policies to improve corporate governance. The CEO incentive mechanism must be based on indicators that can accurately assess CEOs’ abilities and diligence. And for these indicators to function properly, CEOs’ influence over their board of directors must be restricted in order to strengthen the board’s independence.

Professor Adam Szirmai, who co-runs our research theme on Economic Development, Innovation, Governance and Institutions, talks about our priorities, partners and expected impacts: http://www.merit.unu.edu/themes/3-economic-development-innovation-governance-and-institutions/ Transcript: I am one of the two coordinators of Research Theme 3: Economic Growth, Innovation, Governance and Institutions. I do this together with Theophile Azomahou. The focus of this research theme is the long run economic development in general but of course specifically of less developed countries in the process of catch-up and we're interested in understanding why some countries succeed in forging ahead and becoming emerging economies and at a later stage high-income economies but some other countries fall behind or stay behind. And we're interested in understanding the reasons for these diversions. I think that is one of the crucial elements of our discussion to understand why this happens and through this understanding, possibly what can be done about it. Now this research theme combines many different things. It focuses on the one hand on the study of growth in the long run but it also includes specifically the role of technological change in the process of growth, one of the old themes of UNU-MERIT. And it merges this with the new interests of the School of Governance focusing on Institutions and Governance, but not just as subjects in their own interest, but as parts of the longer process of growth. For instance we can look at better governance and better institutions as an outcome of the development process but we can also think of it as an input into the development process. And this brings us immediately to one of the most interesting empirical questions about causality, whether governance and institutions are drivers of growth or whether they simply come with successful growth experiences that as countries grow, they develop better governance and better institutions. So this is one of the major research areas, new research areas, which are part of this research programme. What are your methodologies? Well, we have a variety of methodologies in this research theme, which run all the way from formal modeling, as done among others by people like Adriaan van Zon, to econometrics focusing on longer growth experiences but also statistical historical studies of specific countries or specific regions. For instance we're doing quite a lot of work on Latin America, we have PhD projects focusing on Brazil, Mexico and Chile and another PhD project focusing on industrialization in Mexico, but we also do quite a lot of work focusing on China and on Asia. Another set of projects focuses on growth and technological change in the African context. So we have a very broad comparative perspective, combining I would say these three approaches: macro-modeling, econometric analysis and statistical country studies. In all these approaches, our approach is macro. So we don't use in this research theme micro data, we focus in sectoral data, national data, preferably spanning 20-30-40 years or even longer. Who are your partners? Well, we have a variety of cooperation which really differs from researcher to researcher. For instance, we have a long standing cooperation with UNIDO about industrial development and structural change, one of the important sub-themes [structural change] of this larger research theme. There for instance we are consulting on industrial development reports, we are writing reports on the emergence of the BRICS, we have done joint projects on industrial experiences in different parts of the world. We've also done work related to this topic for the international finance corporation in Washington or the Dutch Ministry of Development and Cooperation in the Netherlands. What are your outputs? First and foremost we would like to publish in excellent academic journals. So I think we encourage all our researchers to really publish their results and get recognition in that way. But we are also oriented towards a policy debate, the debate of developments in Africa, in Latin America, in Asia and in the global economy. And there we encourage our researchers to, well, engage with our external partners in different countries. For instance in every of our DEIP courses we use the results of our research on growth to develop specific recommendations for regions and countries engaging in debate with policy makers in those countries. So I would say those are the two main outputs, academic publications on the one hand and on the other hand, engaging in dialogue with policy makers about growth and catch-up in the developing world.

This week Craig Benzine discuses bureaucracies. Bureaucracies tend to be associated with unintelligible rules and time-wasting procedures, but they play an important, though controversial, role in governing. From the FDA to the EPA, these agencies were established to help the government manage and carry out laws much more efficiently - to bring the rule making and enforcement closer to the experts. But the federal bureaucracy (which is part of the executive branch) has a lot of power and sometimes acts likes Congress in creating regulations and like the courts through administrative adjudications. It's all a bit problematic for that whole "separation of powers" thing. So we'll talk about that too, and the arguments for and against increased federal bureaucracy.

Despite the ever-increasing importance of networks as a societal phenomenon, network researchers in business, public management, and health care services still have only a marginal understanding of consciously created, goal directed inter-organizational networks consisting of three or more organizations (Provan, Fish, & Sydow, 2007). One of the few studies that address the effectiveness of those networks is the study by Provan and Milward (1995), which investigates the relationship between structural network characteristics and network effectiveness in four mental health care networks in the U.S. We first closely replicate this study adding data on four networks of a similar type in the Netherlands and then jointly analyze all eight networks using Fuzzy-Set QCA (Ragin 2000). This increasingly popular method of analysis allows researchers to identify different configurations of conditions that might lead to certain outcomes. The results of this study confirm the main findings by Provan and Milward; namely, the positive impact of centralized integration, resource munificence, external control and stability of the network for network effectiveness. The configurational approach, however, enables us to further specify these results and identify two distinct constellations of conditions including the governance of those networks that lead to effective outcomes.
