Eng227 week 6 and 8 course project

| February 14, 2018

An outline of the entire proposal using traditional outline format (see Figure 14.7 on page 397; however, your Introduction will have four subsections: Background of Problem, Purpose, Sources and Methods, and Report Organization). Use the Week 6 Outline Worksheet in Doc Sharing for the information to include in the outline. If you chose to include borrowed material in your outline, make sure you incorporate correct APA in-text citations.The Introduction of the proposal (written in paragraph form, not outline form) featuring the following four parts as second-level headings:Good news! The negative press from the trucking situation in Indonesia has been successfully mitigated. Upper management now recognizes that E227 Global Solutions has long talked about being green, but has not made any major efforts toward reducing the company’s carbon footprint on a global scale. With operations in the U.S. and abroad, E227 Global Solutions has seen generally successful localized initiatives to reduce energy consumption, reduce or eliminate chemical by-products, and minimize office waste.Management at E227 Global Solutions is now challenging the entire company to adopt “green” strategies and reduce the company’s carbon footprint by 25% in the next year. Recognizing that great ideas come from all levels of the company, E227GS is challenging you, its employees, to generate ideas for going green and achieving, and possibly exceeding, the goal of reducing our carbon footprint.GuidelinesRemember, the goal of the proposal is to recommend a sustainable green strategy the company can adopt to reduce the carbon footprint by 25%. The primary audience is your division manager, Anne Brown; however, your proposal will probably be read by anyone in upper management.For the week 8 assignment, you will submit a formal proposal to your division manager Anne Brown, recommending a strategy the company could adopt to go green. In week 6 you will submit an outline of the entire proposal, as well as the introduction of the proposal itself.As part of the planning stage, you will research 3-4 green strategies and decide on a specific strategy (e.g., reducing printer waste such as paper and ink; phasing in an energy efficient fleet of vehicles; installing solar panels or wind turbines to power the office building, etc.). Or you can research a general area such as physical facilities, recycling, transportation, etc. Just make sure the solution is broad enough so that you’ll be able to talk in depth about the one recommended strategy.For your research, you need to find a variety of sources (at least six). Some sources may be found through the DeVry library, while others could be found through internet research. To use library resources, go to the Student Resources tab (under Course Home), click Library, and familiarize yourself with the menu in the upper left hand corner. Explore various sources, including the online librarian. A good place to become familiar with this topic isGreen Business Practices for Dummies (2009) by Lisa Swallow, which is available through DeVry’s online library, as well as additional online sources listed in the Webliography. Make all sources arecredible. To avoid plagiarism, all borrowed material must be cited correctly using APA guidelines.Week
