Question 1
The sustainability manager is concerned about the long term sustainability implications of Deluxe boxes on the environment and suggest changing to sustainable materials for the production of a Sustainable Deluxe Box.
If the company switches to their current quantity of Deluxe Boxes sold to Sustainable Deluxe Boxes there will be some cost implications.
The Sustainable Deluxe Boxes could be made cheaper, and the sustianability manager believes that the company could bring down the selling price to $15 per box which would entice current Deluxe Box customers to accept the switch over. The new Sustainable Deluxe Boxes will attract 60% of total fixed costs calculated for the Deluxe Boxes under the ABC method. The number of boxes sold will not be affected by this new selling price, as the company will in future have to do marketing to sell more boxes at the lower price. Calculate the new Gross profit and profit percentage. Complete the grey spaces
