Managing in a Carbon World - Business Simulations to Help Build Sustainable Management Solutions

The passing of the Australian Clean Energy Act in November 2011 adds Australia to a list of some 30 to 40 countries who have adopted or - are considering - carbon tax systems. Business managers throughout the world are having to develop strategies to deal with new, cleaner business environments. Tycoon Systems Inc of Delaware, USA, have added management of carbon taxes to their extensive range of business simulation models, covering hundreds of different industries.

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) November 14, 2011

As governments throughout the world move to deal with problems of environmental management, business managers must also develop solutions to regulations that are being imposed by government, or proposed by their own trade groupings and society at large. Carbon taxes and cap-and-trade schemes are being enacted by governments in many countries, and it is imperative that industrial leaders fully understand their business options, implications and obligations when defining strategies and responses.

Tycoon Systems Inc uses high-end simulation technology to educate future corporate leaders - their simulations are used in business education programs throughout the world. Managers use these models to discuss major business issues in marketing, financing and operational strategy workshops, or as an integral part of leadership development programs. Tycoon offers individual-use simulation models - accessible by executives in their own time - or multi-user simulations for team-building, group events and seminars.

A great example of a Tycoon Systems model which directly address CSR is their "Green Car" simulation, in which players build a business manufacturing a range of standard gasoline autos, hybrids and electric cars. Strategic options include product range decisions to optimise carbon emissions, as well as investing in clean manufacturing technology to reduce the impact of excess carbon production. An average level of carbon across the whole corporation is assessed, and if this exceeds government requirements then financial penalties are applied. Those companies which manage their operations within government guidelines benefit from higher net incomes after carbon charging – this benefit feeds through into an increased stock value.

Players compete in real time and every decision has an immediate effect on the competitive environment of all players. IndustryMasters is not only more realistic than conventional business simulations, it's also more entertaining.

"Corporations and the academic world are increasingly employing business simulations in their training offerings," said Thomas Lehnert, CEO of Tycoon Systems. "Using IndustryMasters, our customers will be able to offer the most realistic and engaging business simulation on the market, and the only one to build awareness and understanding of sustainability."
