To meet the population’s demand for products and services, it is inevitable that industry will interact with the environment during the search for inputs and outputs in the production processes. With the globalization of the market, it is no longer efficient or sustainable for companies to employ linear economic models in which the fundamental idea is to extract raw material, transform it, and discard it at the end of its life cycle.
