Making Things Greener: Motivations and Influences in the Greening of Manufacturing
In 1991 Australia was (and still is) confronting several key problems: economic problems, resulting in high levels of unemployment and growing foreign debt; and bio-physical environmental problems, relating to greenhouse gases, depletion of the ozone layer, pollution and resource depletion. The development of green industry has been seen by many in the community as having the potential to contribute to the solution of both sets of problems. However, for this potential to be realized, information was and is required about the factors which might promote the expansion of green industry. This book answers questions about the broad need for change; factors influencing behaviour towards the environment; organizational behaviour, and green industries; and factors motivating, facilitating and inhibiting greening processes.
