Abstract

Corporate management has a great deal to offer to industrial pollution prevention. Industry is the world’s foremost creator of wealth, employment, trade, and technology, as well as the controller of tremendous human and financial resources. Industrial and business processes add value to resources and meet basic human needs. The multinational companies are powerful enough to influence international environmental and development problems. They often take a more farsighted and international view than governments (Schmidheiny, 1994).
