Examining environment-economy linkages / Envirocon Limited; principal author: R.A. Knowles. : En93-16/1986E-PDF

"This paper proposes a way to describe and measure the relationship between Canada’s economy and the natural environment. Certainly, history has taught us that some forms of economic activity can harm the environment. Fortunately, there is now a growing understanding that many steps taken to protect the environment can generate economic benefits and, moreover, that sustainable economic performance depends on protecting the environment. In other words, rather than being diametrically opposed, economic performance and environmental quality are different sides of the same coin. In addition, Canadians value their environment for cultural, aesthetic and spiritual reasons. In many cases, these values in themselves provide all the justification that is needed for intensive protection of the environment"--Foreword.
