The most dangerous of such misconceptions is that environmental issues have no direct bearing on daily bread-and-butter matters. Attitudes on the environment are slowly beginning to change, yet in terms of policy, such concerns still have to be better integrated into all areas of policy. This need can be acutely felt in the domestic context.
Present policies seem to attempt to create a compromise between economic growth and environmental protection. Such environmental policies are implemented on the proviso that competitiveness is not diminished and that employment levels are sustained.
