The pursuit of sustainable development, a more and more current goal in the global society, affects entirely the responsibility of each territorial system. An integrated approach to sustainable well-being of each territorial system, besides, rests on the commitment of all its stakeholders to contribute to building a Green Society. This means, for each of them, a no-environmental dumping pathway. But the market globalization forces all territorial systems to compete with each other with respect to: provision of goods and services; ability to attract financial capital, foreign direct investment, human capital and residential settlements. If territories aim for a homogenisation process, to compete with each other, this strategy, especially without strong public and private investments in innovation and labor productivity growth, it will trigger, as a very likely result, a race to the bottom, through the most different ways of dumping. The natural result will be to put at risk the possibility within them, to aim for an integrated approach to sustainable well-being. Lacking, then, the goal of a Green Society. By doing so, you also end up with hindering the objective of sustainable development in the global society.
