MBA Operations Management - Case Study Guides - 05: GREEN MANUFACTURING AND SUSTAINABILITY AT FRITO-LAY

GREEN MANUFACTURING AND SUSTAINABILITY AT FRITO-LAY

MBA Operations Management

GREEN MANUFACTURING AND SUSTAINABILITY AT FRITO-LAY

The 7-minute video, filmed specifically for our text, is available
from Pearson and is designed to supplement this case.
1. Although cost is typically the number-one long-term motivator to reduce resources, Frito-Lay’s investment in solar power is
not yet a cost saver. Being on the cutting edge of being “green”
may help with advertising and public relations, but a positive
impact on the bottom line may not occur for some time. Second,
pressures are generated by various power groups in society, including customers, environmental groups, socially conscious investors, and municipalities and counties in which the firms operate (many landfills as well as fresh water and waste water systems
are run by municipalities or counties), as well as state and federal
government regulations.

AACSB: Ethical understanding and reasoning
2. Techniques the firm is using to become a green manufacturer include using solar power to generate electricity, recycling
water, selling by-products such as starch as animal feed, setting
specific goals, using biodegradable packaging, motivating both
managers and employees to get the job done with score cards and
action plans, and, perhaps most important, leveraging top management leadership.

3. The Walmart case that we provide on our Web site for this
chapter provides an excellent parallel with actions by a manufacturer (Frito-Lay) and a retailer (Walmart).
