Environmental factors are specialized elements in the physical, demographic environment and are affected by the operations and growth of the organization. Genetic factors deals with the hereditary transmission and the variation of inherited characteristics among related organisms. Environmental factors are of utmost significance to many planning systems across the world as attempts have been made to minimize the overall effects of development on the local and global environment.
There is the development of technology that has brought about the creation of the solar panel; the panel is believed to decrease the production of greenhouse gases hence making it a clean and pure device that is environmentally friendly. The value of installing the solar panel has made it possible for most home owners as it provide limitless supply of energy and is obtained of free charge. Though the energy obtained from the sun is free, still there is the issue of investing time and money in getting supplies needed to collect the sun’s energy (Benson & Haith, 2009). There is therefore a refutation as it has negative economic effects on the users as it drains their funds and capital resources.
Natural gas is an important source of energy that is used for reducing pollution and maintenance of a healthy environment that offers a number of environmental benefits; this is possible as it is one of the cleanest fossil fuels that can be used to reduce the emission of pollutants into the atmosphere. Thus natural gas helps to alleviate some of the environmental pollutants and this makes it much more preferable than other modes of fuel. In spite of this, the mining and processing of the gas is expensive and has tremendous negative effects on the individuals who directly engage in its extraction.
Environmental factors may also determine the development of diseases in the genetically predisposed particular conditions that are found in products and household cleaners that determine a large segment of non-hereditary diseases. Weather also as an environmental factor affects business; this is usually possible as consumers purchase goods according to season. There is the introduction of the hybrid vehicles that are designed to be an alternative for the traditional guzzlers as they combine energy efficiency with reduced carbon emission thus helpful to the environment. Developmental changes such as the introduction of hybrid vehicles aids in facilitating faster and smooth conduct of business activities and a cleaner operational environment, however, it has a negative effect as it is expensive and wastes time in training individuals to use the newly introduced machinery.
There is the issue of urban youth being involved in sports that lead to positive influence on social competence and self esteem but may lead to the usage of marijuana. As opposed to the rural youths, sports lead them to increase in the likelihood of delinquent behaviors and substance use. Thus these encourage the consideration of environmental factors. Any change in the manner in which activities are conducted always has negative effects on the environment; both emotional and physical state of individuals. For instance, in this case, the youths may resolve to use hard drugs and therefore ruin their health.
It is clear to say that the environmental factors have a number of benefits as compared to the genetic factors. This is so as has been analyzed in this paper that the issue of involving the environmental factors brings the environment at ease hence leading to a better future of the environment as a whole (Benson & Haith, 2009). For every benefit there is a limitation behind it and therefore every advancement ought to be assessed so as to determine its merits and demerits.
