A Financial Perspective of Pesticide Safety

Safety does not have adequate importance in the minds of financial analysts.

This is my impression after reading the material at the following two links: 

The pesticide company under reference is a pioneer of the Indian pest management scene. It is part of one of the most sought-after industrial groups in the world. This corporation can rightly claim to have done at least as much as any of its peers in terms of pesticide safety. Yet there is no mention of such exploits in either of the two business analyses referred to above.

Pesticide safety costs money. It does not generate direct revenues. Commitment to pesticide safety separates ethical industry members from others. Pesticide safety is a key driver of business stability in this industry. It is not a matter for any stakeholder to ignore. 

I invite your comments on this matter. Please post below.
