  • No responses have been submitted.
  • The environment isn't a high priority for most companies

    What corporations care about most is the bottom line - even at the expense of environmental damage. For example, when British Petroleum spilled all that oil into the Gulf of Mexico, they lied about the extent of the damage in order to preserve credibility with shareholders. Companies are more interested in turning a profit so they don't care about the environmental costs that might come with that.

  • No, companies do not pay enough attention to the environment

    No, companies do not pay enough attention to the environment. It is very costly to pay attention to the environment. The fact that the Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) program sponsored by United Nations Environmental Program reported almost no industry is profitable after factoring in environmental costs is an example of how costly it is.

  • No, companies do not pay enough attention to the environment.

    No, companies do not pay enough attention to the environment. We may not be doing as badly as we were in past years but the environment is not in very good condition. Some things have started to get better but others are getting far worse. Companies should be taking bigger steps to protect the world we live on since they make the biggest impact.

  • No, many companies do not pay enough attention to the environment.

    Many companies do not care about the environmental impacts that are caused by their business activities. If it was not for the fact that consumers have to pick up many of the environmental costs, many companies would not be profitable. Therefore, companies must pay more attention to the environment when conducting business. That way the environmental costs of doing business can be reduced.
