Industrial Environmental Ethics

Industries are harmful to the health of environment and hence at large are considered as nuisance. When raw materials are processed, some waste is inevitable e.g. paper industry leads to a lot of wastage and pollution of water. It is usually not possible to completely control the dispersal of all by-products of a manufacturing process. Also, some of the waste material may simply be useless. Ethics are involved, however, when an industrialist compromise upon the quality of a product or waste disposal to maximize profit. It is cheaper to dump wastes into a river than to install a wastewater treatment facility. At its core, environmental justice means fairness. It speaks to the impartiality that should guide the application of laws designed to protect the health of human beings and the productivity of ecological systems on which all human activity, economic activity included, depends.
