Existe una gran controversia sobre los efectos de las políticas ambientales sobre la competitividad de las empresas y sobre las economías nacionales. A pesar de que, en general, hay instrumentos que, a corto plazo, producen costes sobre determinados sectores (los más contaminantes), los efectos a largo plazo sobre el conjunto de la economía son más complejos, y las propias políticas ambientales desatan diferentes mecanismos positivos para el sistema económico, tales como la innovación, un funcionamiento más eficiente de los mercados, la aparición de nuevas oportunidades o la mejora de la imagen de las empresas. Además, la no-adopción de políticas ambientales, desemboca en unos costes que a largo plazo se intuyen mayores que los propios costes de adopción, ya que entre ellos hay la degradación del medio ambiente y la sobreexplotación de los recursos naturales, sustentos básicos de cualquier forma de vida y por lo tanto, del mismo sistema económico.
