All parts of our society, be it the government, business or individuals are encouraged to operate in more environmentally friendly ways, to aid sustainability for the world. This, we have to be clear on the significant role we play in delivering a sustainable world. It is such an eyesore to witness the sick environment that is happening around us, yet the society seems to be ignorant about it up until now. However, there are several methods that can be made in order to create an environmental friendly community in today’s society, namely, raise awareness, preserve the ecosystems and by practicing 3R. For a community to be environmentally friendly, we must begin with the first simple step, which is raising the awareness among our society regarding environmental issues.
Environmental ethics is an ethics that studies the relationships between human beings and the environment. Humans is a part of society as well as other creatures, which includes plants and animals. These are an important part of the world so I think we as a human being need to respect and use morals when dealing with these things. From my opinion, the environmental ethic is very important to help us conserve our world and manage our natural resources to meet our increasing needs and wants. But I found out myself had a very limited understanding of environmental ethics.
Energy, population, wildlife and population protection, air and water pollution, resource protection, toxic waste are exposed to the problem will determine the quality of life of present and even future generations. Indeed, human behavior endangers the conditions of the Earth's atmosphere and season, as well as the survival of all life on Earth. Therefore, how and to what extent can we pursue the goal medicine, environmental protection, conservation biology, etc.? And when we should prioritize action on climate change, biodiversity conservation over other significant social goals? In all, recent research cannot make informed choices without environmental and ethical experts whose task is to develop such theories and give them a public justification in an open debate.
Therefore, we need to think about tomorrow with respect to every action that we take in the environment and in this case we can say that sustainable development requires slower population growth. With this in mind, we need to be educated through our cultures about the impact we caused to the environment as we continue to reproduce. The challenge of environmental ethics has led to the attempt to apply traditional ethical theories, including consequentialism, deontology, and virtue ethics, to support contemporary environmental concerns; the preservation of biodiversity as an ethical goal; the broader concerns of some thinkers with wilderness, the built environment and the politics of poverty; the ethics of sustainability and climate change, and some directions for possible future developments of the discipline [ CITATION And15 \l 1033 ]. With this multi-dimensional approach one can see that it is more of a cultural issue to think of it from its origin. We have grown to see our parents have children, build houses, buy cars cultivate farmlands, explore timber and many other aspects.
Currently bioethics is being used as guidelines by researchers, experimenters, doctors and scientists. There are ongoing debate questioning the reliability of bioethics in biological fields and are the involved parties using it as it is. Although some would believe that emphasizing ethics in biotechnology will make researchers value life, the rights of animals and humans will be upheld strongly and it would prevent man playing God in creation; it would deter further research and discoveries that would bring major changes. There is much to gain
Remaining responsible is vastly important to any organization. Many strategic plans will alter some of the organization’s policies, procedures, and practices. When conducting the environmental scan, management must collect information for the company to understand what is and what is not ethical. According to Wheelen & Hunger (2010), Riordan’s ethical responsibilities “are to follow the beliefs and behavior of the organization in society.” As a plastic manufacture, society expects Riordan to use recycled plastic to help protect the environment. By using up older water bottled, Riordan can help protect the environment by not polluting the environment by producing more.
Green marketing has become the choice for many companies due to the concern of the environment. When we combine “green” and “marketing” together we can be certain that this strategy was to achieve the company’s goal of putting themselves known to the world as in these recent years green marketing has become a hot topic due to many environmental factors. According to Dabija and Pop (2013) the companies that know how to adopt and develop a strategy to render their own activities sustainable by adopting environmental protection principles and an environmental friendly management of their own resources, by implementing green marketing policies and resorting to clean energy, have indeed managed a better adaptation to the permanent environmental changes and tempestuous conditions on the markets where
These changes are increasingly being influenced by a firms’ policies and practices that affect the quality of environment and reflect its level of concern for the community.” The ultimate aim of green marketing is environmental protection for present and future generations. Need for Green Marketing Bringing in new customers while retaining the old ones while keeping the safety of environment in mind is a major challenge faced by the companies these days. Customers today are more interested in product that are green and environment friendly. Companies today are posed with new challenges to address issues related to health, climate change, new legalizations, pollution, waste disposal, resource utilization efficiency, neighbourhood amenity etc. To tackle these issues , Green Marketing is a must, else it would be impossible for companies to survive in this competitive world.
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a key aspect of many large scale planning applications. It is a technique which is meant to help us understand the potential environmental impacts of major development proposals. Unfortunately as often as not both the process and the outcome of EIA can be complex and confusing leaving local communities unsure as to how a development might affect them. This guide is intended as a broad introduction to the Environmental Impact Assessment .It is an useful aid for decision making based on understanding of the environment implications including social, cultural and aesthetic concerns which could be integrated with the analysis of the project costs and benefits. This exercise should be undertaken early enough
One of the fundamental elements for the survival of human is environment. Humans rely on environment for their lives and will continue to do so in the future. Environment provides us with various goods and services that regulate and support our living. All these elements of environment are interlinked and dependent upon each other. Humans are the only element of nature that tries to modify the environment to fulfill their needs and greed.
