Ecoefficiency (measures to minimize environmental impact through the reduction or elimination of waste from production processes) has become a goal for companies worldwide, with many realizing significant cost savings from such innovations. Peter Senge and Goran Carstedt see this development as laudable but suggest that simply adopting ecoefficiency innovations could actually worsen environmental stresses in the future. Such innovations reduce production waste but do not alter the number of products manufactured nor the waste generated from their use and discard; indeed, most companies invest in ecoefficiency improvements in order to increase profits and growth. Moreover, there is no guarantee that increased economic growth from ecoefficiency will come in similarly ecoefficient ways, since in today's global markets, greater profits may be turned into investment capital that could easily be reinvested in old-style eco-inefficient industries. Even a vastly more ecoefficient industrial system could, were it to grow much larger, generate more total waste and destroy more habitat and species than would a smaller, less ecoefficient economy. Senge and Carstedt argue that to preserve the global environment and sustain economic growth, businesses must develop a new systemic approach that reduces total material use and total accumulated waste. Focusing exclusively on ecoefficiency, which offers a compelling business case according to established thinking, may distract companies from pursuing radically different products and business models.

the passage implies that which of the following is a possible consequence of a company’s adoption of innovations that increase its eco efficiency?

细节题,问一家公司采纳能够提高其生态效益的创新所能带来的一个可能的结果是什么,用adoption of innovations定位,定位于第7行的adopting ecoefficiency innovations...的下一句Such innovations reduce...use and discard
A错误,文中没有提及那些不能保证持续改进的公司;
B正确,这是文章作者表达的意思,即给环境造成更大的伤害,对应文章第二、三句的内容;
C错误,题目问的是adoption of innovation that increase its ecoefficiency, 而不是那些fails to realize significant cost savings的公司(文中没提过),无中生有;
D错误,文中未提到在与传统企业竞争中变得脆弱;
E错误,“再投资到不能保证ecoefficiency的方向”实际上是“companies' realization of greater profits”的后果,而不“adoption of innovation that increase its ecoefficiency”的后果,提及但无关

    减少了生产废物但是没有改变生产数量和使用后被丢弃所产生的废物-Such innovations reduce production waste but do not alter the number of products manufactured nor the waste generated from their use and discard; 大多数企业投资于该产业是为了增加利润-indeed, most companies invest in eco efficiency improvements in order to increase profits and growth.没有保障说油EE所增长的经济会同样用到类似EE的生产方式中-Moreover, there is no guarantee that increased economic growth from eco efficiency will come in similarly eco efficient ways```
    
    
    A company profits resulting from such innovations may be reinvested in that company with no guarantee that the company will continue to make further improvements in eco efficiency.A选项的意思是说公司从这种创新所盈的利可能投资到不能保证EE模式的公司中。意思转变了!

    小心此类的迷惑,即文章有多处解释,注意看考的是哪一个解释
