Creating emotional and economic opportunities
The importance of the environment to man and every other living creature cannot be over-emphasized. The
environment is an essential part of man’s existence and human beings are at the centre of concern for
environmental sustainability. Nigeria is an oil and gas producing nation. The exploration and exploitation in the
Nigerian oil and gas sector impact negatively on the environment. The Nigerian environment is in danger,
having been degraded by human activities. Economic activities are not carried out in an environmentally
sustainable manner and with adequate attention and concern for the environment.
