Environmental Concern Social Pressure Commercial Pressure Humanism Environmentalism Green Movement Green Selling The business of business is business Societal Marketing and CSR Environmental Marketing and Management The conventional approach to the business-society- environment inter relationship
As concern for the customer, society, and environment increases, so each of the three ‘balloon’ expand. This produces a range of possible management responses to any issue. As concern for the future and about social and environmental issues increases, so the three circles are pushed together enlarging the central area of environmental marketing. Conversely, a reduction in any of the socio- business-environment pressure will cause these balloon to deflate and retract.
The physical environment Society Business A green perspective on the business-society- environment inter relationship This concentric circle model implies that all of the activities of a business take place within the context of society, and that all of society’s activities take place in the context of the physical environment.

Business in Society Business is often seen as the enemy of the environment, the polluter. There is, however, a tide of change and it is now increasingly being seen as the essential partner, as part of the solution and not the problem (Burke and Hill, 1990) Bernstein (1992) views such pronouncement as premature, and business certainly have a long way to go before they are genuinely repositioned as more of a part of the solution than a part of the problem. However, the concept of partnership is an important one…. Nine out of ten surveyed CEOs feel that partnership between business, government, and society must play a role or some role in addressing key development challenges facing the world today. Among them are: 1.Promoting good governance and tackling corruption 2.Alleviating poverty 3.Achieving sustained economic growth and education 4.Sustaining peace and security 5.Eliminating HIV/AIDS 6.Securing access to energy and water World Economic Forum’s Global Corporate Citizen Initiative, GCCI.

Green consumption and environmental marketing is only a partial answer to the problem of achieving sustainability. So too is legislation…. What is certain, is that unless the powerful forces of marketing and consumption are aligned to the political, legal, educational and social efforts to reach sustainability, the dream of a sustainable society will be replaced by the nightmare of environmental catastrophe.
