Fiji Water and Corporate Social Responsibility
Objectives of the case:
1. To understand how and why marketers have to embrace CSR to make their marketing strategies sustainable
2. To provide a forum for discussion, analysis and decision making on what the company can should do in order to successfully cope with the CSR challenges it faces

The written analysis is to be no more than 3 pages total. Please format your assignment as follows: 12 point font, 1 inch margins, double spaced. You can include an additional 2 pages of exhibits. You will be evaluated on the quality and creativity of thinking evident in the paper, your ability to apply concepts from class to the problem, and your ability to communicate clearly, concisely and persuasively.
