Abstract

Proposes that environmental degradation and pollution pose threats to health in a multitude of forms; and that hazardous effects will continue to emanate from industrial processes so long as commercial viability dictates the necessity to deposit hazardous wastes in the air, soil and water. Shows how recent research into small and medium‐sized enterprises’ approaches to environmental concerns illustrates the limitations of national and European Union voluntary codes of practice. Following from this research, outlines the case for bioregional regeneration modelling in which the concept of place assumes a central role in industrial decision making.
