Business Outcomes Ethics Questions

You are the general manager of a regional chemical company. In the course of producing your bulk chemicals, large amounts of particles and smoke are emitted through your plant’s smokestack.

· The level of pollutants is below current EPA regulations, and you are violating no laws,

· but neighborhood groups are complaining about minor health problems caused by the smoke.

After investigating numerous alternatives, you find the most effective solution would be to install a “scrubber” system which will remove 90% of the pollutants and ash. Coat =$1 million. Do you install the system?

Identify three stakeholders and at least two specific ethical considerations or questions for each of the stakeholders you select.
