General Strategy for Addressing Oil Spills A Contingency Plan spill response strategy should address steps from point of release through release into water body and final extent, based upon worst case trajectory.   Humans have fundamentally altered the biophysical environment of the Earth (Crutzen ), and the rates of change have accelerated during the recent decades (Lewis and Maslin ).Often, these environmental changes are de facto irreversible. Worryingly, the full consequences of global environmental change and degradation often manifest themselves with substantial time lags Cited by: 1. The main objective of this paper is to discuss different approaches, identify challenges, and to select a framework for delivering effective sustainability assessments. Sustainable development is an idealistic concept and its assessment has always been a challenge. Several approaches, methodologies and conceptual frameworks have been developed in various disciplines, ranging from engineering Cited by:

Findings – The paper presents an integrated framework showing the corporate sustainability pressures, proactive strategic responses to these pressures, and how organizations might use SCS in. The paper links concepts found in the Corporate Social Responsibility and Innovation Theory literatures, in order to explore corporate response patterns to pressures for change and to develop a Author: Sonia Labatt.

isms, populations and ecological communities do not, however, respond to approximated global averages. Rather, regional changes, which are highly spatially heterogeneous (Fig. 1), are more relevant in the context of ecological response to climatic change.

In many regions there is an asymmetry in the warming that undoubtedly will. This framework evolved over two decades (Atkins et al., ; Patrício et al., ) to originally be an environmental management paradigm as a feedback loop system in which driving forces (D) of social and economic development exert pressures (P) on the natural environment thereby changing its state (S), potentially resulting in impacts (I Cited by: 2.

Urban areas are understood to be extraordinarily spatially heterogeneous. Spatial heterogeneity, and its causes, consequences, and changes, are central to ecological science.

The social sciences and urban design and planning professions also include spatial heterogeneity as a key concern.

Environmental governance is a concept in political ecology and environmental policy that advocates sustainability (sustainable development) as the supreme consideration for managing all human activities—political, social and economic.

This paper proposes a systematic framework for the analysis of tensions in corporate sustainability. The framework is based on the emerging integrative view on corporate sustainability, which stresses the need for a simultaneous integration of economic, environmental and social dimensions without, a priori, emphasising one over any other.

The integrative view presupposes that firms need to Cited by: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY William Smith, Ph.D. Workshop Chairperson Professor of Forest Biology Greeley Laboratory, Yale University The EPA Workshop on the Draft Proposed Guidelines for Ecological Risk Assessment, held December 6 to December 7, in Washington, DC, brought together 25 experts charged with generating a clear set of comments and recommendations for EPA to use in.

This sector has been increasingly under pressure to adopt responsible practices and show commitment to sustainability. However, Corporate Responsibility is not an easy concept for companies to implement.
