International environment policies: the policy implications for Zimbabwe
MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines the nature of international environmental policies and their impact oil trading relations between developed and developing countries. The main concern of this study is that businesses in the developed countries have been subjected to various regulations both local, regional and international, which aim to encourage them to improve their environmental performance. On the other hand businesses in the developing countries such as Zimbabwe are still to come to grips with emerging challenges brought about by local and international environmental legislation. Such a situation it is argued is likely to put Zimbabwean terms of trade in an unfavorable position, compared to regional trade blocks such as the EEC. As concluding remarks, a strategy for incorporating environmental concerns within local businesses is presented, focusing on the design and implementation of Environmental Management Systems.
