Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a theoretical model on the cost of quality incorporating the effects of environmental degradation. The proposed model introduces the effects of environmental degradation into the COQ space through the addition of a new component. The traditional COQ model includes Prevention, Appraisal, and Failure classifications. This new model, COQ-ED, adds an Environmental Degradation variable to the model. The purpose of this new component is to focus on those events which can cause significant costs to the firm and the environment. This will assist companies in becoming "greener" and more environmentally friendly, thereby providing a competitive advantage for their products.
