While the environment has increasingly become an area of research for many social and natural scientists, there has only been a limited engagement with these issues by industrial geographers. This paper investigates the contribution that industrial geographers can make to the environmental debate, particularly in relation to the integration of economic and environmental policy. The importance of the appropriate scale at which to address environmental problems is discussed.
