Environmental Issues

Evidences on environmental degradation, pollution, deforestation, soil erosion and loss of arable land, critical shortages of water, high pollution with heavy metals, the disappearance of protected as well as common animals, advancing desertification, and loss of biodiversity are overwhelmingly present in every corner of the world. Nations are failing in addressing these crises and the potential for further accelerated amplification of these issues is quite considerable. The key to prevent or reduce the effect of environmental issues is sustainability. There is now clear scientific evidence that humanity is living unsustainably. Strategies to diminish the intensity of these issues could include setting tax rates consistent with environmental targets and reducing the exemption on environmental taxes, phasing out subsidies that are environmentally damaging, creating a sound, cost-benefit analysis of proposed environmental regulations and educating and informing the public about the effects of the choices.

The global market for the equipment for the control of air pollution, one of the major environmental concerns, reached nearly $56.6 billion and $61 billion in 2013 and 2014, respectively. This market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2% to $78.4 billion for the period 2014-2019.

Forests, lakes, rivers and oceans provide a significant share of households’ diets, fuel and incomes and represent a precious safety net in times of crisis. The integrity and functionality of these vital natural assets, however, are increasingly compromised. Sixty to seventy percent of the world’s ecosystems are degrading faster than they can recover. Mismanagement of the environment and natural resources results in significant losses. There were about nine million early deaths due to exposure to soil, water and air pollution in 2012. Most of that impact was felt in developing countries.
