In the words of Michael Porter of Harvard Business School, "the lingering belief that environmental regulations erode competitiveness has resulted in a stalemate". One side pushes for tougher standards, the other tries to roll standards back. The Dominant view is that there is an inherent and fixed trade-off between ecology versus the economy. On one side are the social benefits that arise from environmental standards. On the other side are the private costs to industry of prevention and cleanup that lead to higher prices and reduced industrial competitiveness. This static view, in which everything except regulation is held constant, ignores the fact that companies are constantly finding innovative solutions in response to pressures of all sorts--from competitors, from customers, from regulators. Research shows that tougher environmental standards canenhance competitiveness by pushing companies to use resources more productively. The concept of resource productivity opens up a new way of looking at this complex issue. Most managers and regulators, even today focus on the actual costs of eliminating or treating pollution and recycling. Instead, they should focus on the enormous opportunity costs of pollution-wasted resources, wasted effort, and diminished product value to the customer. Such managers must start to recognize environmental improvement as an economic and competitive opportunity, not as an annoying cost or an inevitable threat. International competition has changed dramatically over the last few decades. Senior managers who grew up at a time when environmental regulation was synonymous with litigation now see increasing evidence that environment preservation is good business. Modern organizations have realized the benefits of going 'Green' and are increasingly making their operations greener to minimize the detrimental effect on
ecology. "Green Management" is not about phrases, it is about practicing the environmental concerns in
