Environmental Social Governance, Environmental Protection, Environmental Sustainability
For the past four decades the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, Japan, Australia, and other developed nations have adopted sweeping environmental protection regulations to address the state of their air, water, soil and other natural resources, to protect human life and to protect and preserve the natural environment. The imposition of environmental regulations on business, while having a steep price, has had the beneficial effect of reversing two centuries of the harmful effects of the Industrial Revolution. And yet, despite all the progress, the work of protecting and preserving the Earth is never ending. As the Industrial Revolution spreads to developed nations, there is ever more “environment work” to be addressed.
The original movement to protect the Earth and its inhabitants in more recent times was the Conservation Movement, stretching back to the 1800s; then more recently came the Environmental Movement; and now we see the emerging global Sustainability Movement. This section of Accountability Central is devoted to topics environmental, including news, research and insights, commentary and opinion, and more.
