A-level Applied Science/Investigating Science at Work/Local community impact

How the organization impacts on the local community

You should consider the socio-economic and environmental effects(beneficial and detrimental) of your chosen organization, and how it impacts on the local community. You should identify:

  • The ways in which energy consumption is managed in the organization;
  • The demands made on transport and communication systems;
  • Management of waste materials and the effect this may have on the local environment;
  • Contributions to the local economy. These could include community use of facilities, sponsorship of local groups etc.
