Everything that you will do as a business person will

Everything that you will do as a business person will have an ecological corporate, every decision you make, every activity, every action, everything has a reaction related to the environment. It might be very small, but there is an action. Since you are more tempted to internationalize for efficiency reasons, you have basically only three types of efficiency of doing it: 1. Productivity, 2. Low cost, 3. Ability to pollute. Efficiency is getting what you need cheaper, productivity to pay less your labour and being able to pollute. Because those are essentially the cost associate that make operating in the developing world expensive, it is even more to hire people. It is expensive to get stuff out of the ground, especially if you are located here and that the material needed is not in the same place as you, it is very difficult and expensive to not pollute. When you internationalize for efficiency reasons, you are going to do something different as you do back home, and it is even greater than when you make it operate back home, and the odds is that there will be an ecological footprint of you doing that. Part of the reason you would do that is because you are able to. Different countries around the world place a different value on “Hey, I’m protecting the natural environment”. That’s not because they are stupid, it’s not because they don’t really care, it’s partly because they can afford it here. e.g. I got free water from the fountain, perfectly clean, there is no any kind of parasite on it, I’m not going to get sick or anything, it’s pure water. How unusual it is for me to drink water for free. So, because I can get water, one of the main things I need to live, so effortlessly, the number of things I have to do in one day to survive, is barely nothing. I need to eat something from the fridge. In my country, I may need to worry during one hour in order to get everything to survive. In most of the other countries of the world, I will need to worry 23/24 hours for my survival. Efficiency: if I want to reduce my costs, one of the main reasons and features I am looking from the country to which I want to internationalize is that I don’t want to have to pay to be environmentally friendly. The reality is that most of the world has not the opportunity to stop and think what is going on Earth, since they do not have the privilege, time, education and resources that we do have. 4

The world NEEDS to be aware of what is going on with the natural environment. They looked for environmental protection into three perspectives/conceptualizations, that are: 1. Finiteness 2. Interdependence 3. Sustainable development We cannot ignore what happens on the other side of the world, since Globalization, what affects there will impact us here as well. We’re all in this together.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
