Respect for god's world: the Biblical and Rabbinic foundations of environmentalism
by Hershey H. Friedman, Yehuda L. Klein
International Journal of Business and Globalisation (IJBG), Vol. 4, No. 2, 2010

Abstract: The ancients faced many of the same environmental issues that society is facing today. This paper demonstrates that the Bible and the Talmud are the ideal starting points for those interested in raising moral standards for business and society when it comes to the environment. Issues of concern to the ancients included conservation of resources, waste, pollution, animal rights, beautifying the environment and appreciating the world and improving it.
