Industry and commerce, as well as the public sector, have a crucial role to play, and an effective approach is to set up an environmental or green audit. Based on survey interviews, provides reasons for corporate involvement in environmental concerns. Lack of involvement will eventually be self‐defeating for trade and industry.
