I believe environmental laws are implemented for a reason and companies should comply with these laws to benefit the environment, rather than try to cheat them for their own economic gain. As seen with the Volkswagen scandal, companies find ways to cheat their way around environmental laws and this will continue to happen if there isn't any action taken. I envision a world where companies focus more on producing more environmentally friendly products rather than putting economic profit as their sole target. Laws serve no purpose unless they are actively enforced in an effective manner. So I think, in order to solve this problem in the future, stronger environmental laws need to be put in place and more importantly, these laws need heavy enforcement to prevent companies from finding ways to cheat the system.
