In the 21st century, there is an increasing global awareness of the threat posed by the human-induced greenhouse effect, produced largely by forest clearing and the burning of fossil fuels.

Three Pillars of Sustainability

Key Challenges
Global Warming Ozone Layer Depletion Deforestation Increasing Pressure from Ethical Consumers Population Growth & Resource Limits

IPAT Formula
One of the initial attempts to express human impact mathematically on the environment was developed in the 1970s and is called the IPAT formula I=PAT Where: I = Environmental impact, P = Population, A = Affluence, T = Technology

Go Green!!
The green strategic choices for businesses are to reduce, recycle or renew Three types of green companies
Companies that reduce e.g. Procter & Gamble with smaller size shampoo and washing detergent. Companies that recycle e.g. producers of NiCd batteries. Companies that renew e.g. paper industries that plant trees to replace those cut.

How Organizations Go Green

Legal (or Light Green) Approach: Firms simply do what is legally required by obeying laws, rules, and regulations willingly and without legal challenge. Market Approach: Firms respond to the preferences of their customers for environmentally friendly products. Stakeholder Approach: Firms work to meet the environmental demands of multiple stakeholders employees, suppliers, and the community. Activist (or Dark Green) Approach: Firms look for ways to respect and preserve environment and be actively socially responsible.
