Abstract


Climate change which occurs as a result of natural and anthropogenic factor is majorly exacerbated by emission of green house gases, destruction of landscape greenery, injudicious disposal of waste and effluents emanating from industries. All these portend grave implications to environmental health and sustainability. This paper evaluates sustainable development practices and awareness in business organisations in Nigeria. It also assesses the commitment of firms to the three spheres of sustainable development principles - social, economic and environmental. The paper underscores the factors hampering sustainable development practices in business organisations, and recommends ways by which they can effectively play their roles towards achieving the national agenda for sustainable development.
