Interests/Environmental Policy/Economic Theory:
Def Environmental policy triangle of interests: a distinction is made here: polluter interests - interests of those affected - helper interests (von Prittwitz 1990, p. 116ff). (1)
Polluter interests: Polluter-interests are geared towards maintaining activities that are as polluting as possible and thereby securing their benefits at the lowest possible (environmental protection-) costs.
Interests of those affected: are aimed at eliminating environmental damage quickly and completely.
Helpers' interests: benefit from dealing with environmental damage, e.g. by providing technology to reduce emissions, thermal insulation, etc.
Problem: Interests of helpers can cause costs for other industries and thus arouse resistance. (Böcher and Töller 2012a, p. 127 ff.) (2)
