“Benefit all mankind” is the South Korea’s motto. A selfless motto, for a people who have suffered from being invaded by the North Korean communists 60 years ago. Once the cease fire began in 1953 between North and South Korea, they rose from it and became the proud country that it is today.

The environment will benefit from this because the less companies use natural resources for their products the more time the environment can recuperate without going extinct. Overall, environmental security is a valuable investment because it allows growth in the economy, health, and environment, and partnering with South Korea and the U.S. will decelerate the air
