Environment

BACKGROUND

Sustainable industrial development, climate change, access to drinking water, energy and waste management are all issues the public, business and government will have to address in the 21st century.

The environment industry offers technology solutions, along with goods and services that cut down on air, water and soil pollution, as well as help conserve resources.

This now booming industry, which has developed considerably in recent years, is expected to keep growing in the foreseeable future.
