  • These research teams study for example the impact and mechanisms of greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric pollutant on climate, ozone depletion and carbon sinks (oceans and inland waters, forests and soil). They do research to understand the mechanisms and assess the impact of global change on the water cycle, water quality and availability, as well as soil functions and quality to provide the bases for management tools for sustainable water systems. Biodiversity and ecosystems are analysed to understand and minimise the negative impacts of human activities.

  • Recently public attention has turned toward the intricate interrelation between economic growth and global warming. This book focuses on this nexus but broadens the framework to study this issue. Growth is seen as global growth, which affects the global environment and climate change. Global growth, in particular high economic growth rates, implies a fast depletion of renewable and nonrenewable resources. Thus the book deals with the impact of economic growth on the envi- ronment and the effect of the exhaustive use of natural resources as well as the reverse linkage.

  • The burning of fossil fuels puts into the atmosphere carbon dioxide, which is causing gradual global warming. This 'greenhouse effect' may by early next century have increased average global temperatures enough to shift agricultural production areas, raise sea levels to flood coastal cities, and disrupt national economies.

  • Today there is not a single aspect of the world that can escape the scrutiny of environmental analysis, and business activities stand at the crux of many issues. Some of the issues that today’s executives need to understand to be environmentally literate include: air, water, and land pollution; the production and disposal of hazardous wastes; solid waste disposal; chemical and nuclear spills and accidents; global warming and the greenhouse effect; ozone depletion; deforestation and desertification; biodiversity, and overpopulation.

  • Technology has affected society and its surroundings in a number of ways. In many societies, technology has helped develop more advanced economies (including today's global economy) and has allowed the rise of a leisure class. Many technological processes produce unwanted by-products, known as pollution, and deplete natural resources, to the detriment of the Earth and its environment. Various implementations of technology influence the values of a society and new technology often raises new ethical questions.

  • The nature of environmental challenges has changed considerably in recent decades. Nonetheless, the global nature of environmental problems has long been known, as issues such as pollution, loss of biodiversity, global warming, ozone depletion and tropical deforestation do not respect international borders. One can argue, however, that it is only in recent years that these problems have become widespread matters of concern among the general public. The issue of climate change was at the forefront of the debate on global environmental problems in 2007.

  • The effect is to leave the North with positive rates of genuine savings, and many resource-rich Southern countries with negative or near-zero rates. This distracts attention from analysis of the ‘environmental space’ occupied by economies with strong, traditionally-defined economic growth — and excessive consumption of the world’s resources. 23 Many people argue that reducing Northern consumption levels is central to curbing excessive resource depletion and pollution and reducing global inequalities in energy use and other forms of consumption.

  • The LCA covered several different environmental impact categories; global warming, acidification, eutrophication, ozone layer depletion, photooxidant formation and resource use as well as toxicological impact categories. In addition the results were weighted using two different weighting methods; Ecotax 02 and Eco-Indicator 99. The results showed different patterns regarding where in the life cycle the main potential environmental impact can be seen.

  • While population grew at rates beyond Malthus’ imagination (see Figure 1), food production expanded even faster, and the debate has shifted to concerns about the role of population growth in the depletion of other natural resources, such as fossil fuels and minerals; in the degradation of renewable resources, such as forests, fisheries and biodiversity; and in the despoliation of local environment and the global climate.
