Case to Discuss:

Industrial growth, a typical indicator of developing countries, is on the one hand contributing towards the economic growth and on the other hand is the main cause of polluting the environment. Economic growth is as necessary for developing countries and their evolution as clean, safe and healthy environment.

Do you think that developing countries are sacrificing heath of their nation on the cost of their growth? Keeping in view the ethics, what stance will you take, alter the growth or the health of nation?

Replies to This Discussion

Sustainability ethics have grown out of environmental ethics. The World Commission on Economic Development brought the idea of sustainability to the global stage in 1987. The United Nations sponsored this study of the relationship between economic development and the environment, published as "Our Common Future," also known as "The Brundtland Report." Prior to this, the United Nations had struggled to find a way to address global environmental problems. The industrialized countries had proposed international treaties and action, but the developing nations had prioritized the need for economic development, with little interest in environmental regulation. The commission provided the conceptual framework for coordinated action, proposing that all nations have a stake in fostering economic development, but of a new kind: sustainable. It proposed sustainability as an integral framework, in which economic development, social equity, and environmental protection are seen as inseparably related goals.

The Brundtland Commission advanced public understanding of the link between economic growth of the poorer nations and global environmental protection. The commission argued that poorer countries must have the opportunity to develop economically - if they are denied this opportunity it will be much harder to convince all countries to support practices that can be sustained over time - but richer countries must foster policies to favor environmental conservation with economic development. "Our Common Future" laid the foundation for the "Earth Summit" at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992, which marked the real beginning of international environmental protection initiatives and proposed a sustainable development agenda.

my Answer:

According to the above scenario we can easily say that the industries are the need of any economy in the developing country and it is expanding day by day to increase the Economic growth but if we look on the other side there are some drawbacks as it may cause the polluting the environment and became the main cause of it. Through different means now as we know that there are some discussions that take place to show that the extent of the environmental damage that industrial technology has produced. We must surely sacrifice some values to halt or slow it.


Now first we should come to know what is polluting.


So the Pollution refers to the undesirable and unintended contamination of the environment by the manufacture or use of commodities and air, water, or land diminishes their beneficial qualities.

  1. 1.      Air pollution:


With modern society for nearly 200 years; its costs are increasing greatly. It negatively affects agricultural yields, human health, and global temperatures. The result is a large economic impact and a staggering effect on the quality of human life.


Global warming is the biggest example of this issue


  1. 2.      Water pollution

Is the biggest case of the industrial growth in these days because all the industries are throwing their waste in the water rather to burn then or to bury them and happen more in developing economies and getting expand in no time and as it also be the need of the hour to grow the industries. Now to grow the economy so we should expand the industries.

But on the other hand we just need to control the pollution through every mean and to do so we need to educate the people and tell them not to destroy the water and Air the there industrial Waste.
