Environment refers to everything that exists in the physical world including the non-physical aspects such as air, land, water, sun, and so on. The natural environment encompasses everything living and non living things happening naturally, which means in this case non-human. The word is most commonly used to describe the entire Earth or parts of the Earth. It includes living organisms such as plants, soil, animals, humans, and other kinds of geology, geophysiology, and planetary formation.
The use of the term “natural environment” began in the late nineteenth century, with the publication of Charles Darwin’s book, The Origin of Species. It explained how all living things on Earth came about through natural processes, without the interference of any outside forces. Since then, the scientific community has explained everything regarding the natural environment, including how it came about, and how it is maintained today. However, over time different theories have been developed that attempt to explain how the environment might be created artificially. In addition to this there are also discussions concerning the effects of human activity on the environment, such as the depletion of the ozone layer, global warming, and other man made problems.
There are several ways in which the environment can be managed. Managers are involved in the planning, organization, and controlling of the environmental variables. They do this by implementing techniques that deal with external factors such as construction, design, materials, power, temperature, lighting, ventilation, and communication. There are also those involved who control and monitor the environmental variables in office buildings and factories. In this way they ensure that everything runs according to plan, and that the building functions properly for the utilization of the resources available.
