Environment, technology and corporate responsibility
Technological development and environmental responsibility are placed in their management context. A framework is constructed for the analysis of environmental issues in relation to the dynamics of business, from input via processes through to output and outcome. The concept of quality of products and services is matched with the concern for pollution and quality of life. Guidelines are presented for effective codes of practice for environmental responsibility with specific focus on technology. Examples are given from both European and American perspectives. It is the link between corporate responsibility, technology and strategic performance that organisations would need to integrate into their corporate culture of the future.
