You are managing a project which requires an environmental permit to do work. The approval is in the final stages of being granted when a confidential, reliable report is brought to your notice which indicates that there is a high risk of an environmental hazard due to the project. Your manager tells you that it is better to keep quiet at this stage since the loss due to non-starting/execution of the project is very high. You will:
A. Send an email to your manager documenting the matter and disowning ownership of the project.
B. Inform the necessary authorities of the hazard, even if it means that the project will be cancelled.
C. Wait for the project to start and see if the information in the report was true.
D. Keep quiet about the matter since you will follow your manager’s instructions.
