I think I will start being more aware of the impact my choices have on the environment. I could start looking at the disclosures of the companies I buy from and see what impact they have on the environment. I may also start purchasing products that are more energy efficient and advantageous in the long run. Even though these products may be more costly in the short run, I know I will be awarding the companies that are innovating technology for pollution control.
One company should set their goals and target so that they can see and check their track improvements. Besides, it also can help manager who in charge in facilities to assure the accounting department to invest in new technologies, when necessary.

In the future, the Fumes to Fuel concept can replace existing air pollution systems because they practice the concept of lower the energy consumption and minimize the greenhouse gases. In reality, green manufacturing is vital in preserving our natural resources for next generations.
Recycling is important if we want to preserve our planet in the future. It is better for future generations, and is also good for the environment. By reusing products that have already been manufacturer, we can reduce waste and also reduce the use of new materials. When thinking about recycling, one should think about the idea of “reduce, reuse, and recycle”. After years of neglect in caring for our environment, necessary changes have to be made.
It’s a very serious issue that everyone needs to be concerned about and take action to reduce. I think that people can be conscious about their energy use and fossil fuel consumption and carbon emissions, but are not aware of the choices they can make. Additionally, people are discouraged and disregarding the fact they can make a difference in their impact (carbon footprint). As well, the government and businesses need to get involved in lowering the prices on eco-friendly and energy efficient products or offering incentives to encourage people to buy eco-friendly and energy efficient products. People would not only be saving money, but also conserving energy.
Despite the fact that fast foods have faced criticism due to their negative effects, the fast food industry is growing day by day. Mainly, people claim that fast food is unhealthy and contains a lot of sugar, sodium, fat, tremendous amount of chemicals, and significant amount of calories that tend to do the human body more harm than benefit it. However, the dark truth is that fast food is a necessary evil. It is important, in our lives and they make life easier. As a result, there is a need to not only regulate the packaging of fast foods in order to control its effects but also to ensure that fast food industries put the health of their customers in mind.

The paper is very important keeping in fact that it considers Environmental management as a prime factor or driving force for a firm’s efficiency. Presently we could see all the companies are surging towards a greener approach. Companies are trying hard to establish themselves as global environmental friendly firms by different certifications like ISO 14001, etc.
The greater push for sustainable design may have seen creativity diminish in that the functionality has now again taken precedent over from. Sustainable design principles however, have proven to successfully engage and solve global environmental issues by using tools such as bio mimicry, efficiency, renewability and durable design methods. Environmental fears and ethics have resulted in sustainable design impacting contemporary architecture resulting in a theory revolving around sustainability. The scope as to which sustainable design principles can grow appears large, however it would be interesting to note if any new technological advances would impact aspects of architecture as greatly as the beginning of sustainability.
This dilemma has brought much debate among professionals and activists, but the issue should ideally be left to the consumer; however through the years the consumer has continually shown to make the wrong choice. The industrialization of the food market and the lack of self-control within society has been threatening humanity in various ways. First, the processed foods that are becoming the norms of today are lowering the life expectancy with every bite. Second, the health problems that are becoming more apparent in our nation’s citizens are being passed on from generation to generation. Last but not least, the convenience of these fast foods are making it much easier and seemingly beneficial to purchase them on a daily basis.
These are terms used to describe the desired (and often purely conceptual) transformation of the private sector, from one of often flagrant resource use and disposal into a sustainable and ecologically concerned industry. ?The eco-efficiency imperative is based on the idea that companies must come to terms with the new realities of population growth, increased evidence of global warming, ozone depletion, loss of fertile soils and forests. These new realities will change the markets (customers' attitudes) and lead to tougher government regulation. This will change the bottom-line of each company now and increasingly in the future. Costs related to pollution will become staggering.
(Bryant, 1995) Community groups, on the other hand, have to demonstrate a greater environmental awareness, and community people to be motivated to learn quickly if a situation is life-threatening to them. By becoming informed enough they may challenge professionals on the issues; wherever possible, citizens should question researches by consulting other professionals with different opinions. (Bryant, 1995) Governments should give an emphasis on prevention of the environmental damages. Industries should be supported economically to make the economic transition from producing harmful chemicals to producing more environmentally benign chemicals. (Bryant, 1995) New policies should be also crafted to ensure that environmental justice will be served.
