Siting Guidelines for Industries

Industrial development significantly contributes towards economic growth.Howevwer,industrial progress brings along with it a host of environmental problems.Many of these problems could be avoided if industries are located on the basis of environmental considerations,injudicious siting of industry can seriously effect the environmental features such as air,water,land,flora,fauna,human settlements and health of people.The entrepreneur should be fully aware of these implications and he should take necessary steps while setting up the industry so as to minimise the possible adverse effects on the environmental resources and quality of life.Often,an entrepreneur finds it very costly to install pollution control equipment and other mitigative measures after the industry is already set up.As such,preventive steps are needed at the time of siting rather than going in for curative measures at a later stage.
