  • Analysis of the Impact of the GDPR on Third-Party Risk Management Programs
           and Related Recommendations for Domestic as Well as International
           Corporate World

    • Authors: Lucie Andreisová
      Pages: 1 - 11
      Abstract: The General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter also the “GDPR”) has imposed several new rules on organisations (business companies) to protect EU individuals’ personal data. Organisations that are data controllers or data processors need to have assurance that their third-party suppliers/vendors as well as sub-contractors comply with applicable GDPR requirements – in other words, they are now responsible for personal data managed by their third-parties. The question however remains, whether and how they are ready to manage this in their business practice' Compliance with the above indicated GDPR requirements comprises of a specific methodical approach that should be carefully integrated into the existing third-party risk management programs. The success of this integration builds on several crucial considerations. Before weighing those, it is important to understand how GDPR (Article 28 in particular) places new requirements on suppliers/vendors and affects the overall third-party relationships. Considering the above, this paper discusses the specific GDPR requirements which were enacted to strengthen companies’ third-party risk management processes and includes a set of practical recommendations on how to establish/amend such programs in the corporate world.

  • Immune-Boosting Functional Foods: A Potential Remedy for Chinese Consumers
           Living Under Polluted Air

    • Authors: Lei Cong, Miranda Mirosa, William Kaye-Blake, Phil Bremer
      Pages: 12 - 27
      Abstract: The deterioration of air quality in China has resulted in many people looking for remedies to counteract the impact that air pollution is perceived to be having on their health. As the importance of diet on immune health is becoming increasingly well recognised, a narrative literature review was undertaken to elucidate Chinese consumers’ acceptance of functional food products designed to help the immune system recover from pollution-driven impact and to assess their market potential. Consumers’ attitude towards immune-boosting functional foods were mainly positive, with scientific validation being important in determining the credibility of a product. This was despite the fact that the effectiveness of the functional food products currently in the market that purported to be remedies for pollution-driven impacts on the lung did not appear to be supported by scientific evidence. Numerous studies have reported functional foods could provide a wide range of benefits to immune health, including helping pollution-driven immune issues. This review highlights the market demand for effective and scientifically-proven functional food products that help Chinese consumers’ immune system recover from the impact of air pollution.

  • Are Technological Terms Seductive' The Effect of Technological Terms
           on Persuasion

    • Authors: Keli Saporta
      Pages: 28 - 49
      Abstract: Most claims in marketing communication take the form of causal claims stating that using a certain product (the cause, e.g., "Fresh Air, the electronic device") produces a certain benefit (the effect, e.g., "purifies the air at home"). Marketers acknowledge (and studies show) that providing an explanation on the mechanism by which the product produces the effect fosters persuasion. Yet, instead of providing the specific mechanism (e.g. "it purifies the air at home by reducing dust parcels in the air"), they often use general technological terms. Thus, instead of explaining, "Fresh-Air purifies the air at home by reducing dust particles in the air," they "explain" that the product purifies the air by "applying a new algorithm." We call explanations that use general technological terms pseudo explanations, because they follow the same structure, but they lack the crucial element that enables persuasion—they are not content specific.Although using pseudo explanations is a common practice in marketing, no studies have examined if they affect persuasion. In two studies, we exposed participants to causal claims for various products in several formats, and asked them to indicate the probability that they would purchase the product if they needed it. Generally, results show persuasion was the same for pseudo explanations as for the claim alone, when both were less persuasive than mechanistic explanations.Consumers are sensitive to the fact that pseudo explanations do not really explain the mechanism. Thus, whereas pseudo explanations do not affect persuasion, mechanistic explanations do.

  • An Extension to Late Rentierism, using a Comparative Compound
           Diversification Index, to Show the Movement Towards Mixed Mode Economic
           Diversification and Development, in the GCC States

    • Authors: John W Lang, N. Aldori
      Pages: 40 - 57
      Abstract: This study draws together several strands of research, including late rentierism, economic diversification in the GCC states of the UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain, in an attempt to measure the direction of the trend towards a mixed mode economy. A comparative compound diversification index (CCDI) is developed to measure the movement along the late rentier continuum of development. The research is based on data from various Global Innovation Index (GII) reports and databases, which provide the attributes used to measure the overall trends. It creates a foundation for the ongoing measurement of this trend over the coming decade, and provides a correlation with the oil price fluctuations, thereby measuring how much the GCC states dependence may be changing, however incrementally, and however marginally that may be. The study does confirm a move towards a mixed mode economy, with knowledge-based, technology and innovation led activities at the heart of that incremental and marginal change.

  • The Effect of Eco-efficiency and Size on Company Value Listed on the
           Indonesia Stock Exchange

    • Authors: Msy. Mikial, Taufiq Marwa, Luk Luk Fuada, Inten Meutia
      Pages: 58 - 65
      Abstract: This study aims to empirically examine the effect of eco-efficiency and company size on the value of companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange. The data used are secondary data obtained from annual reports and sustainability reports of companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange from 2013 to 2016. The number of observations in this study is 80. The instrument used to analyze is Partial Least Square. The novelty in this study is that eco-efficiency is calculated by comparing the amount of net sales to energy consumption, and to measure a company size with a proxy for the number of sales. The results of this study indicate that eco-efficiency has an influence on company value. The direction of influence is negative, meaning that the better the eco-efficiency, the lower the value of the company. Company size does not affect the value of the company, in the sense that the sale value does not cause the value of the company to experience better changes, because the value of the company is more influenced by the assets owned by the company. The limitation of this study is that the amount of energy sources used is difficult to obtain, so the study population is limited to companies listed on the IDX that have a Sustainability Reporting and are included in the Sustainability Disclosure Database from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), which is not large. In the future it is expected that companies responsible for the environment implement environmental management accounting with eco-efficiency assessment indicators so as to reduce costs and environmental impacts by making more efficient use of resources so as to increase company value.
