Pollution prevention is always better than environmental
cure, and it is outlined that the issue of how pollution prevents emerging and
is becoming an important pressing challenge in a contemporary globalisation
world. Policymakers and practitioners increasingly recognise pollution
prevention as a crucial global health issue. There is substantial agreement
underlines the need to prevent pollution volume along with the manufacturing firms’
operations. However, there is currently a lack of understanding as to what are
most effective internal organisation governance practices to be implemented to
achieve a zero-pollution target. Multi-level governance framework has been proposed
to facilitate pollution prevention planning. To deal with the pollution
prevention challenges, the practitioner must move towards more multi-level
governance approach that builds on a grand coalition of different
organisational units. In the current study, we review relevant literature,
noting most optimal taxonomies that highlight understudied areas in pollution
prevention study, and serve as a basis for developing multi-level
governance(MLG) framework. MLGframework is essential not only it offers help to
practitioners to participate, but also because it takes a systematic approach.
This work contributes to the emerging debate on what is the most effective
pollution prevention planning framework for manufacturing firms to achieve zero-pollution.
