Business, Ethics and the Environment


  • Maliza Delima Kamarul Zaman Faculty of Business Management, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia



Traditionally, businesses that regard the natural world as “free” and “unlimited” have abandoned environmental considerations. Environmental considerations also act not only as the source of raw materials and energy to meet human needs but also act as the repository for human-generated waste. Because of this, business functions and their intrusion into ecosystems have frequently had unfavourable effects. Business produces dangerous products and causes pollutions that may result in many kinds of dangers. Therefore, it is the purpose of this study to review the interactions between business, the natural environment and environment ethics.

Keywords: Environmental ethical commitment; business.
