Individuals can do nothing to improve the environment; only governments and large companies can make a difference. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

Some say that the
environment
can be improved only by governments and large enterprises and that individuals are useless for
this
purpose. I agree that the government and large enterprises play a key role to make the
environment
better than it is now. Large companies have financially strong power to invest their money to help make the
environment
cleaner. To reduce the emission of pollutants, which are generated during manufacturing various products, a large amount of investment is required to install equipment to remove these pollutants.
Further
, environmentally friendly raw products,
such
as trees, generally cost more than raw materials which are cheaper that trees but generally produce more pollutants than trees do.
Therefore
, large companies can improve the
environment
by investing more of their money to reduce the emission of pollutants. Governments can contribute to the improvement of the
environment
by changing laws so that people can live in society in a cleaner and more environmentally friendly way.
For example
, the government can direct people by law to the use of public transportation rather than their own personal car. By doing so, the emission of noxious gases from cars can be reduced, and
then
the quality of the atmosphere can get better. Governments
also
are able to ban dumping sewage from factories in rivers or the ocean by law.
Such
legislative measures to make the quality of air and water cleaner can be implemented only by governments, not by individual. In conclusion, I believe that governments and large companies can improve the
environment
by using the ways which are impossible for individuals to implement by anyhow.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
