Environment and Sustainability

Edited By Celil Aydin and Burak Darici

The fact that environmental issues, which cause a significant externality within global goods, have gained a global dimension, necessitated more concrete steps for challenging with environmental issues. At this point, efforts to reduce environmental issues and protect the environment have been on the axis of sustainability. This book contains theoretical and empirical researches written by academicians and researches in the field of environment and sustainability. In the contributions, the macro dimensions of environmental pollution such as economic growth, health sector and technological development are examined. In addition to these, the contributors deal with micro dimensions such as consumption, marketing, accounting and firm behavior both in theory and empirically.

Preface

Extract



The concepts of sustainability, which constitute a new agenda in the discussions on economic development, have led to the questioning of the traditional perspective on environment and natural resources. Although it is possible to make different definitions on the concept of sustainability with many dimensions such as economy, energy and environment, the basic principle is to ensure continuity in these three different areas.

In this book, several specialist academicians in their field have examined the topic of “Environment and Sustainability” from different perspectives. The global environmental issues, environmental policies and the link to sustainability have been analyzed in both micro and macro scales. The current situation, changes and transformations from past to present are discussed both empirically and theoretically in the light of new approaches.

We would like to thank all the authors and researchers who contributed to the study for their commitment and scholarly nitpicking. We also appreciate the families and children who are the source of motivation for our authors with their patience and support during the conduct of these valuable works.

And also we would like to thank Professor Süleyman ÖZDEMİR, Rector of Bandırma Onyedi Eylül University for his contributions and support.

Sincerely yours

Editors; Celil AYDIN and Burak DARICI
