Aspects and impacts identification Aspects can be defined as organizational plans and policies to generate environmental sustainability. The products, activities, and processes during manufacturing also assert on the aspects that organizations incorporate both to yield profits and maximize societal welfare by promoting a sustainable environment for the surrounding communities. Among the various aspects by Happy Harry’s auto is the emission of bad odors that generally occur from manufacturing tires among other significant productions made by the firm. This significantly reduces the welfare of the communities, who have to live with bad odors emitted by the firm. Processes such as fuel injection, adjustment of carburetors and altering spark plugs have their waste products as an oil which is then emitted to the water and hence causing water pollution, and hence posing a direct environmental hazard which in turn adversely affects the welfare of the neighboring community.

This also poses a direct environmental threat as soil degradation may cause desertification in the long run. Oil soaked and contaminated rags usually occurring from battery repairs and replacements are also hazardous in the sense that they are flammable and hence could easily cause the fire. This causes an indirect environmental hazard and hence affecting overtime welfare. Carbon dioxide emitted to the air also limits the growth of plants and hence posing an underlying threat as they also limit the growth of essential plants such as trees, which could lead to desertification, as well as food plants which eventually leads to famine. This effect may also be generated by tire changes as soaked rags are also a waste material from this process.

Happy Harry poses a negative externality to the community around which it operates by emitting bad odors. It is, therefore, a requirement for the government to impose a Pigovian tax to discourage production or the firm compensates the community in order to continue with production. Aspects and impacts significance determination There are various ways through which organizational aspects and their implications to the environment are determined and categorized. The "process flow method" requires that the organizational products, processes, and activities be actively identified and analyzed in order to determine their respective impacts on the environment. A distinguished monitoring and evaluation team is created who are responsible for identifying the processes and plotting their respective impacts on the environment Chun et al, (2018).

Such firms should adopt policies such as recycling, building emission structures among others to reduce the rate at which pollution occurs. References Epstein, M.
