Business Acknowledges Environment Lobby

Squall 13, Summer 1996, pg. 6.

A RECENT BUSINESS AND THE ENVIRONMENT SURVEY has demonstrated that Corporations are becoming more aware of the power of increasing environmental concerns.

The report commissioned by the Environmental Consultancy company Entec, reports that 90 per cent of the 300 large UK companies questioned for the survey now see it as important to be seen to be “green”, though the actual development of “green” products came bottom of the list of priorities.

Moffatt Associates Partnership who conducted the survey say one of the factors influencing corporate acknowledgement of the pro-environment lobby was Shell’s defeat over its intention to dump the Brent Spar oil platform last year.
