Public Policy Issues for Sustainable Commerceby Phillip D. Schuller, Pennsylvania Energy Office, Harrisburg, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Abstract: Sustainable commerce is the process of providing the material needs of a society while using natural resources no faster than they are being generated and generating wastes no faster than they are being cleansed from or absorbed into the environment. The purpose of this paper is to outline the broad public policy issues relating to sustainability and to begin to develop a tool for policy analysis in terms of sustainability. Energy profit ratios, maximum pollution loading, the analytic use of discount rates and the means of moving toward sustainability are discussed.
