Importance of Government:

 “The government and legislative bodies play a key role in promoting and implementing sustainable development. They advocate, on behalf of citizens and the environment, for businesses to adopt beneficial practices that affect the community in positive ways. In essence, government agencies are responsible for regulating business activities to protect the rights of other stakeholders.” (Chiara Poliak, 2017).
