Environmental Risk

The risk that a certain business venture or activity will cause destruction to the surrounding natural environment. For example, if oil reserves were discovered in a national park, there would be the environmental risk that exploiting the reserves might harm or destroy some of the park's wildlife. While environmental risk implies some moral or at least reputational risk, it also carries economic consequences. A company with environmental risk often has to pay fees for exemptions from certain policies, and it is usually responsible for cleaning up the environment in case it causes a slow or sudden disaster. See also: Cap-and-trade.
