The paper discusses how public influence has ensured that corporations and the national government react to the environmental problems caused by industrialization. The paper explains that individuals and groups can impact the policy-making process by using their rights to access information, attend and participate in public hearings and by joining the different interest groups that pressure and lobby for their ecological and environmental concerns. The paper also relates that public pressure has caused corporations to have a corporate social responsibility which ensures that all stakeholders, including the environment, are not affected negatively by their production.

From the Paper:

"The rapid growth of industrialization came about because of the improvement in technology, mass production and consumption. Because of this growth in the industrial sector, environmental effects such as widespread pollution, unsustainable resource use, and environmental health problems are being experienced across the globe. Governments and corporations before have always been reactive to the ecological effects of industrialization and only make policies and legislations based on their reactions to the damaging ecological changes. Public influence has ensured that corporations and the national government react to the environmental problems caused by industrialization."
