There are several agencies and regulatory commissions that contribute to the direction of growth, preservation and sustainability. Regulatory procedures do not necessarily distinguish between developments that are sustainably oriented or otherwise considered sprawl or "blight." A green industry would have the same or very similar requirements for permits as a traditional industry in terms of land development, air and water quality, endangered species, wetlands, noise and visual. That said, an industry geared to the circular economy, with a low or negative carbon index, may fair better in terms of permit issuance and conditions related thereto, than a comparatively carbon intensive industry.
