Motivation or Justification: Where is God in the decision to engage in environmental sustainability practices
Keywords: sustainability, religiosity
Abstract: In previous years society placed an emphasis on increasing incentives to encourage businesses to engage in environmental practices.However, a reduction in regulatory oversight has encouraged an open market focus on energy consumption, including the return to the use of coal and other fossil fuels (2016, May 26). The goal of this paper is to discuss the role religiosity plays in the decision to enlist an environmentally sustainable, or green strategy. Specifically, this paper will attempt to identify when religiosity is used to justify a reduced emphasis on environmental sustainability or to motivate increased implementation of these practices.
