ABOUT THIS CASE

VietGreen, headquartered in the South of Vietnam, is a Bottled Mineral Water Company striving towards becoming a leading mineral water producer with a strong reputation for social responsibility and integrity. This case describes VietGreen’s decision to explore the potential of material flow cost accounting (MFCA) for enhanced eco-efficiency and achieving the company’s long-term goals. 

This case introduces participants to the company’s major challenges in meeting existing and newly introduced environmental regulations and in dealing with various controversial perspectives of managers involved in a project to implement MFCA.

The focal questions of the case are why and how the company’s management should invest in and apply MFCA to implement its major strategic objectives. In particular, it focuses on the tension between measures improving either environmental or economic performance as well as the search for solutions contributing to both types of goals.

The case method is an active learning tool that helps participants assess, analyze, and act upon complex business issues. This popular session features a Roundtable discussion on writing and teaching online case studies. Cases are utilized to effectively facilitate knowledge transfer and problem-solving. Whether you are looking for new business strategies or curious about how to share or teach others, you will find this session useful. In late October and early November, we will feature two unique teaching cases that use the case method process. These sessions are hands-on and designed to stimulate group discussion.
