Business affects the environment in many ways. For instance, increase in pollution, industrialisation and excessive use of resources have resulted in environmental degradation. Also, the discharge of harmful substances into the environment due to business activities has contributed towards pollution. The following are some of the effects of business on environment:
i. Business organisations emit harmful gases into the atmosphere; these gases degrade the air quality and causes air pollution.
ii. Organisations discharge industrial wastes into the rivers, streams and lakes. This, in turn, degrades the quality of water in the natural river basins.
iii. Business units dump toxic wastes on land; this, in turn, affects the fertility of the soil.
