In recent times, there has been an unprecedented increase in awareness of environmental issues by businesses around the globe. The extent to which this awareness has been created hinges significantly on the customer's perception of businesses' responses to environmental issues such as climate change, global warming, effects of business-gas-emissions on the ozone layer, etc. The growth of some businesses, and indeed the whole industrial society, has been based on the confidence reposed in human ingenuity and its ability to develop new technologies to meet human needs and, more recently, to solve the climate and environmental problems brought about by previous technological developments, particularly those used by businesses and giant industrial houses. In essence, the question that all the above brings to the fore is, should the approach of businesses to these objectives of continued and sustainable growth be at the expense of our climate or the environment? One of the primary reasons why businesses use more nuclear power plants for their energy supplies today is to combat global warming and climate change, as nuclear power is said to be relatively free of carbon emissions.
