Various stakeholders of British Gas, UKhas now demanded the use of sustainable and environment friendly business process Kotchen, According to Kitzmueller and Shimshackthe adoption of CSR has now become a major issue for the companies because by enhancing the corporate position of the company the CSR activities also brings in a support from the community, minimises the risk of any crisis and finally initiates employees engagement for the company.
The company offers a wide range of energy products like the electrical home appliances and also services in terms of energy safety policies like Boiler service and safety, gas safety certificate, Kitchen appliances repairs service etc www.
The major initiative taken by the company in this respect is to produce energy with lower carbon emission, treating the customers fairly by effectively pricing the services and communicate effectively with the various stakeholders. The researcher will try to analyse the positive and the negative impact of CSR activities and also cost and the problems faced by British Airways in order to implement the CSR activities accordingly.
The major issue faced by British Gas is the ineffective CSR activities that are adopted by the company. Apart from this British Gas also faces the problem of high cots in implementing the CSR activities within the company.
The researcher has highlighted this as an issue because in the present context the customer and the employees are having high demands from the companies in respect of a sustainable environment Kitzmueller and Shimshack, Hence British Gas is forced to adopt the CSR techniques in order to enhance their corporate reputation.
In the present scenario this is an alarming issue for the company because the revenue of the company has decreased by 1. The lack of the well formulated CSR activities is making the company lose its market share to local energy companies Kim and Lyon, Moreover the company has to incur high operating costs for the implementation of the CSR activities and in return it is not benefiting form the adoption of these activities.
The research will help the management of British Gas to analyse the ways in which the company can enhance the level of its corporate social responsibility.
Research methodology The researcher in this part of the project has highlighted the various approaches and the philosophy adopted for conducting of the research project.
The selection of the post positivism philosophy, deductive approach and descriptive research design will help the researcher to complete the project effectively. According to Mertensthe post positivism approach shows that the researcher of a project should include both scientific analysis as well a common sense analysis in order to arrive at a fruitful conclusion.
Hence the use of the post positivism philosophy will enable the researcher to collect the data from the respondents in a scientific manner and then analyse them using common logical sense. The researcher here will use the deductive approach so that the researcher is able to derive conclusions based on the proposed theories and observations.
Greene and Hall opined that the inductive approach is used when a researcher aims to generate a new idea in the context of the research topic. In this research the researcher is focused on analysing the effectiveness of the present CSR activities hence the use of the deductive approach is suitable for deriving at the conclusions rather than establishing a new concept with the use of the inductive approach Lo, Both explanatory and exploratory designs are used in situations where the researcher is not able to ascertain the particular objectives of the research.
Lo opined that use of the descriptive design is generally seen in cases where the researcher has certain pre determined objectives and are willing to conduct the research project using the predetermined objectives.
Hence in this case the researcher will use the descriptive research design so that the researcher is able to conduct an in depth analysis of the CSR activities of British Gas and arrive at the conclusions with the help of statistical as well as scientific tools. Moreover Teddlie and Tashakkori opined that use of descriptive data helps the researcher to collect primary data from a huge range of respondents thereby improving the quality of the research.
McLeod and Thomson opined that primary data is collected by the questionnaire survey of the respondents and the secondary data is collected from the information published in the company websites, academic journals and other social blogs and news releases.
