#1 When shutting down coal-fired power plants many direct, indirect, and circular effects must be considered with regard to corporate, national, state, and the local community for both immediate and long-term consequences (Prado-Domínguez et al., 2021). In the United States, from 2009 to 2017, there were166 coal-fired power plants retired and it is expected that by 2025 the United States will retire about one-fifth of its coal-fired generation capacity (Haggerty et al., 2018). The general business problem is that power companies are closing coal-fired power plants resulting in huge layoffs and economic impacts. The specific business problem is that power industry corporate managers do not know the cleanup process, the land reuse options, community needs, time and costs associated with permits, public involvement, and economic opportunities associated with redevelopment.
#2 Small businesses experience a high rate of failure in the United States during the first 5 years of entering the market (Scott & Pressman, 2017). Small businesses help to keep the economy running. They create two-thirds of new jobs and account for 43.5 percent of the United States’ gross domestic product (SBA, 2019) and represent 99.7% of all U.S. businesses. The general business problem is that too often, small business owners do not appropriately prepare for sustainability. The specific business problem is that some small business owners do not know the relationship between maintaining sustainability and (a) access to capital, (b) internal motivation, (c) education of the owner, and passion.
