The present paper describes some of the increasingly controversial and debated - at a planetary level - implications and interrelations generated by the "man-environment" binominal, in an attempt to motivate the main causes of environmental degradation. As a natural consequence of the baneful impact of modern world's development has exercise upon the future generations, ambiental ethics is a discipline considered one of the most significant contributions of the 20th century to mankind's general progress. Further on, in a logical approach, we see the modalities of influencing human behaviour towards its transformation into a "respectful" attitude versus the environment, namely by means of legal regulations - that soon became standards and norms of environmental approaching, as well as by economic stimuli specific to the market, thus going beyond the "command and control" procedure.
If considering the worldwide orientation of the environmental problems, Romania has demonstrated its preoccupation for the environmental variables and for the economic and social implications they have, adapting its legislation in view of a continuous monitoring of the economy - environment relation, being now in the position of selecting its social, economic and environmental pattern in the times to come.
