Project Costs and Risk Assessment of Environmental Program Project Costs The objective of this project, within the typical parameters of “scope, schedule and cost,” is to develop and implement an office-wide recycling and environmental awareness program within 5 months of acceptance of the proposal (Gido & Clements, 2009, p.115). While it is very attractive for a company to go green, the associated costs will often prevent a corporation from doing so (Seglin, 1999, p. 30). As mentioned in the project proposal, cost is the most obvious constraint on this project, and therefore, expenses will be limited wherever possible (Project Proposa1, p. 4). Because this project is relatively low-budget, most of the costs associated with it will be...The end:

However, with appropriate contingency plans in place to manage such risks, the dangers of loss or project failure are substantially mitigated. References Gido, J., & Clements, J. (2009).
