we do, the things we make and the things we eat, all affect
the environment. When we help to make these things we all
change nature by changing parts of the world.
in a factory, farm, office, or shop, we alter parts of the
environment every day. They contribute to improving the quality
of many of our lives in one way or another.
When we change
the environment, we create wealth. On the other hand there
may be costs to the environment, which we need to take account
Most accounting systems do NOT take account of the costs
to the environment. The environment is taken for granted.
The Environmental Practioner Programme does not take the
environment for granted, but instead it looks to find ways
to reduce our impacts, or make them positive.
