Specifically the slides focus upon air, water and noise pollution, waste management, the destruction of the environment, climate change and congestion before examining forms of intervention including Green Taxes such as the Congestion Charge, Land Fill Tax and the promotion of alternative sources of energy, before concluding with an evaluation of how the environment has impacted upon business behaviour.
