Abstract

Environmental justice is gaining momentum throughout the country. As a result, industrial development can no longer be determined solely by the dictates of one agency or entity. Environmental justice requires efforts of all to participate in the decision-making process to determine how industry will develop in the future. This article traces the history and themes of the environmental justice movement and examines that movement's impact on industrial development. Specifically, the article focuses on how the environmental justice movement affects future source-siting decisions and its ramifications on the various levels of government and on the industrial development. The article concludes by recognizing that the ramifications of environmental justice are so widespread that they must be handled by a coordinated effort between the different levels of government and community.
