ne a more robust strategy for the development of biotechnology. The company has striven to include various stakeholders from India, Africa and Latin America in its discussions. It has also invited envi- ronmental advocates, such as the former president of Greenpeace International to offer divergent views on the matter. The exposure of high-ranked managers and business leaders to radically opposite views has prompted changes and signi fi cant improvements in the company s approach and strategy for selling biotechnology. New ideas for future business models have emerged in line with the company s efforts to leave behind products based on petrochemical material and favor biologic-based businesses (Hart and Sharma 2004 ). 62 M.

animals are living beings and must be treated differently as opposed to when growing and using plants or other man - made fi bres. The fi rst step for any producer, designer, or consumer must be to recognize and acknowledge this fact to act and develop an awareness and sense of responsibility in this area. It is necessary to be open minded and prepared to examine these issues, which can help in accessing and relating to future design processes, production methods, and daily consumption . Animals are sentient beings, and it is the responsibility of humans to ensure that they have a life worth living. The maltreatment of animals can cause severe reputational damages in relation to retailers, consumers, and other stakeholders. As set forth in the UNGC Code of Conduct Principle 11, both producers and suppliers should consider the fact that wild animals and their habitats are part of their natural ecosystems and should, therefore, be valued and protected and that their welfare must be taken into account. Exhibit 1 NICE Code of Conduct Principle 11 Principle 11 . We recognize the conscious ethical decision not to use real animal fur. In businesses where animals are used for materials in production and/or labor, such animals must be treated with dignity and respect. No animal must deliberate be harmed or exposed to pain. Taking the lives of animals must at all times be conducted by trained personnel using the quickest and least painful and non-traumatic methods available. These must be approved by trained veterinarians and conducted by competent personnel. It is important to recognize and respect that animal have a mind and body, which can be harmed due to wrong, ignorant and brutal treatment. Using animal products in fashion is a legitimate practice as long as it is rec- ognized that animals are sentient beings. It is the responsibility of humans to ensure that the animals have a life worth living. Production, breeding and keeping of animals shall be conducted professionally securing the animals the right and suf fi cient food and water and this must consider and respect the individual animals physiological, health and behavioral (space, rest etc.) needs including in circumstances involving transportation of the animals. Wild living animals shall never be captured and used.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
