Although a company might be required by law to comply with environmental regulation, devotion to which ethical norms might influence companies to voluntarily comply with environmental legislation? Clue: Examine the list of ethical norms. Although compliance might add to a company's costs, what considerations may overrule monetary concerns? Many companies are hoping that by “going green”, which may entail higher costs, they will be able increase revenues, improve their public image, and prove a commitment to their customers. The main ethical norm for becoming environmentally friendly is security, in several aspects.

Security of all workers is also raised, as removing toxic emissions might lead to a decrease in sick days, healthcare costs, and/or lost productivity—these aspects, of course, also align with the company’s goals of efficiency, the bottom line of any company.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
