For example, rather than giving control to the fisheries in determining how they use the land, regulations should determine what practice can be used to protect the ecosystems around aquaculture facilities. The facilities should also not cause destruction of any key habitats, such as the mangrove swamps that commonly get destroyed. Aquaculture also results in increased pollution, which sometimes threatens the native wish in the area. To encourage cleaner fish farm production, the government could provide subsidies to companies that pollute less while fining those with high levels of pollution. These types of policies and regulation in conjunction with the Endangered Species Act would promote population stability or group in threatened fish
Water is more precious than oil. It’s that simple” (Wheeler). After the nation concludes fracking, America can perhaps continue researching possible ways to extract the oils. The process of fracking offers several benefits to our nation, but not at the expense of the environment and human lives. By researching ways to avoid the waste getting into aquifers or causing earthquakes the process can eventually reap the benefits.
Moreover, the hidden meaning of the documentary is the invention of plastic is not evil but it depends on how we use it, how much we produce it and how we treat the plastic garbage. People from every walk of life have responsibility to protect our environment and should make an effort to minimize the use of plastic. For example, the government should regulate the use of BPA in plastic production and find out an environmentally-friendly method to decompose the plastic. While the government take the lead, it is vital involve the entire community in reducing plastic waste. The irresponsible people from plastic industry should stop using BPA in the plastic production and should realize the serious consequences of rapid plastic production.
When people are not aware of where their energy comes from, it threatens their values and ideals. Aldo Leopold discusses these dangers in his essay, Good Oak, suggesting solutions to prevent them and improve the environment in the process. Energy powers many of the things key to life. As pollution and environmental destruction become a more imminent threat, humans must control their use of energy, preferably making sure not to use more than is necessary to sustain them. People who do not fully control the sources of their energy may take it for granted and waste it, however if they make changes in their lifestyle, these dangers can be avoided.
Scenario One Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a new concept that has been integrated into the operations models of many organizations. It is an ethical mandate that requires a corporation to establish initiatives that reflect on specific social and environmental wellbeing. All efforts are supposed to go beyond any provided regulation. Wholesome Hamburger Company’s ethical challenge is related to its failure to observe tenets of corporate social responsibility, especially that of sustaining the environment. The drought situation is a significant issue that has potential to affect the operations of the establishment.
By banning bottled water people would be more likely to fill up their own bottles, thus they would be saving themselves money. Also if bottled water was banned then toxins would not be leaked into the water that they would be drinking. Finally banning bottled water would help to save the lives of wildlife and fish. People believe bottles will not hurt animals or fish but bottles do cause great damage to the environment and damage the ecosystem more than thought to have. Fish lose their kelp habitats to bottles that take oxygen out of the water that kelp and fish need to survive.
Case Study #1 Case 1: In the past, Monsanto has had many ethical issues like high performance standards that can cause employees to make unethical and illegal decisions and not owning up to hazards around them. However, Monsanto has been striving to enforce their code of ethics and has spent more time trying to become more socially responsible to the environment. For Monsanto to create an ethical culture, he would have to be proactive in anticipating, planning and acting to avoid potential ethical crisis’ (Thorne, Ferrell, & Ferrell, 2008). New regulations, an enforced code of ethics and striving to be more socially responsible has led Monsanto to enhance their relationships with stakeholders. Monsanto wrote a pledge to inform all of their
In my perspective, the government has to enact legislations and be ready to litigate companies and individuals who flout the country’s environmental laws. Furthermore, the government should engage communities and the entire civil society on the consequences of polluting our sources of water. It is essential to note that a concrete awareness program to sensitive citizens to be responsible stakeholders to our natural resources will help alleviate these problems. When citizens understand their role in society, they will stand up against multinational companies who are greedily exploiting the environment to the detriment of the
The government should find measures to prevent pollution and provide them with a healthier life. While the duties OF the government would be to introduce and enforce stricter laws, that alone will not be enough. For rules and regulations to be implemented, the best way is to for people whom the rules are made, to follow the rules. This makes the rights associated with the rules effective. Take pollution control.
Health and Globalization The movement of people, food, and manufactured goods have a negative impact on public health but they also have an equal positive effect as well. To take steps to decrease the flow of these people and items may show sought after results to the health community, but it is not the solution overall. We need the global economy to continue to foster trade relations of food, medical supplies, manufactured goods, and even tourism. These revenue streams aid countries in their development. Instead of “reducing the flow”, we should implement more direct procedures to limit the risks associated with these items.
Riordan must adopt proven best practices in regard to inventory management. According to Russell (2007) ”Modern supply chains are customer-driven pull systems. The focal firm’s supply capabilities must be synchronized with known and forecasted demand patterns of downstream customers." (p. 60) (Russell, S. (2007). The FlexNet solution will help Riordan to become more customer
The Keystone pipeline should not be built because it endangers the environment and has the ability to create catastrophic damages through pollution and habitat desecration. Though many see benefits to the addition of a national pipeline, the effects and dangers must outweigh any slight economic gain. A small gain in government currency should never endanger the future loss of an environment, which is something than can cannot be
