KBAM PMA Reflection – Logic about environmental management
When I search about the boat manufacturing, I found out that there are different kinds of environmental problems. However, some small manufacturers, especially in developing countries like China, they don’t have enough resources to invest in dealing with these problems. Therefore, there are a lot of conflicts or even lawsuit about this. But what more happen in the rural and less developed area is that residents have no way to complain and solve these pollution and local government have to care about other more important thing. Some people got ill and died. This does not only happen in China. There are also London frog and other pollution in the world.
I don’t think I can change this. Because this is a rather fair logic to deal with problems – always focus on the most important one. We cannot blame a country too much when they focus on development. But at the same time, it is not acceptable to harm those innocent people. I think, until now, my way is to try enhancing their management. When they have more knowledge and awareness about environmental problems, they can try to diminish the pollution since the very beginning. I think this can suitable for those small companies, even though it may take so long time to change their logic, but I think it is rather useful especially when they have no resource but a good heart.
