This research considers it important to understand how the attitudes of Generation Y on the importance of contemporary environmental issues relate to their support for environmental movement organisations’ (EMOs). This research is an investigation into whether self-professed pro-environmental attitudes predict actual pro-environmental behaviour. 3. Project Background and Rationale. It is generally accepted that the planet is in crisis, and that drastic and immediate action is imperative; this is a sentiment increasingly pervasive on a global scale.
Therefore, the United States must actively participate in the creation of international environmental policies. Creating international environmental policies is important, but ratifying and putting them into place is even more important because it's a commitment to action to improve the global environment. The United States must be willing to stick to new policies and sacrifice a little. Time and time again, the United States is willing to tell other countries what they should do, but not willing to do the same thing. This is especially true when it comes to international environmental policies.
Human rights are not only dependent on environmental protection, but environmental degradation often entails the trampling of human rights. Respect for human rights is a protection for sustainable development, that environmental protection constitutes a precondition for the effectiveness of human rights. Human rights cannot be secured in a degraded, polluted environment. The right to life is threatened by soil degradation, exposure to toxic waste chemicals and contaminated drinking water. Environmental conditions determine the extent to which people enjoy their basic rights.
Career fields are in demand based on the environmental impact. This is an intended priority among seekers of healthy spaces. Property Management of environmental sustainability transitions into the healthy culture that contributes to protecting the environment and maintaining a balanced planet. From the article “What Are the Environmental Responsibilities of Business?” the focus was placed on the tasks and important agendas of the organization.

However, "life" is undefined. We, as human beings, have the superiority to nurture and preserve all forms of life. Transitions in population growth (or decline), urban spread, industry expansions and technological advances are critical in determining and modifying the ever-changing needs of the environment. Extensive research and planning with State and local government allows NEPA to anticipate, possibly even predict, an environmental disaster before it occurs. These measures are to insure the most beneficial use of our natural resources, to preserve our Nation's history as well as encourage individuality, to search for improvements in recycling our resources and the discovery of new ones.
A balance still needs to be struck between the scientific and human aspects of monitoring and sustainability. Independent oversight agencies have great potential for bringing stakeholders together to generate sustainable outcomes and positive change in their communities. Independent oversight is essential for sustainability because it empowers communities through public participation, increases social and human capital within the community, and leads to sustainable outcome through ecologically informed decision-making (Moyer et al., 2008; B. Noble & Storey, 2005; Whitelaw et al., 2003).
In result, new solutions should be proposed to benefit from technology in addition to interaction with environment. In this regard, sustainability approach presented and defined in building and architecture sector to improve these challenges. Sustainability and sustainable development is about ensuring a better quality of life for people today and the generations to come, this requires the meeting of four key objectives (Bani. 2007).

This also applies to institutions of higher education (Christensen et al., 2009). Regardless of the location organizations are located in, there is a great impact of their decisions and activities on natural environment. Organizations are now paying a great attention towards these impacts that may be associated with the organization’s activities resulting in generating pollution and waste. Such impacts are reduced by adopting an integrated approach that considers broader economic, social and environmental consequences of organization’s decisions and activities. For human beings to survive and prosper, environmental responsibility is a precondition and is thus a core part of social responsibility.
Legal structure is one of the most important parts of the current society and nation that help the authorities and people to follow the determined path in achieving a specific target. Moreover, in the current environment, it is important for the authorities and nations to highlight and implement strict environmental policies in their respective countries in order to reduce the increasing environmental issues in the world. Moreover, the paper aims to evaluate the concept of sustainable development in the current living pattern. In addition, the main focus of the study aims to analyse the current environmental policies implemented in the UK in regards of protecting their sensitive sites the further balance the nature conservancy and environmental development by means of their legal structure. Last of all, it examines the other legal structures in the world that might further help the UK to enhance their environmental sustainability for their future generation.
According to the EPA, sustainability stems from a single principle that "Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment” (Sustainability Information). Considering this, it's obvious why we need to make sure we live sustainably and do not damage the source of our resources, our environment. Ethical Principles of a Sustainable Lifestyle There are many factors that play into our development and planning for growth. Ethical, economical, and political factors are three main focal points in society. We've realized that our growth as a civilization has wreaked havoc on many parts of the environment as we've expanded and are now seeking to right those wrongs that we can.
