environment is one of the important matters and issues in diagnosing the path of the
economy towards achieving sustainable development. The study shows the negative
effects of the productive processes that occur in this sector. Our study was based on the
hypothesis that "the industrial sector has a weak role in the process of protecting the
environment in Iraq, and industrial investments have not adopted the environmental
dimension at the level of the environmental problem in their accounts when making the
investment. Depending on the methodology of descriptive and inductive analysis, through
a study of the Iraqi industrial sector And testing its role in protecting the environment,
and working on the use of scientific books and statistical publications to achieve the goal
of the study and knowing the validity of the hypothesis or not.
The study concluded that many Iraqi industries were originally established on the basis of
traditional production and not under the umbrella of a clean environment, and it was
necessary to strengthen the role of these industries in the economic and environmental
fields. Also, it is necessary to re-evaluate existing industrial projects from an
environmental point of view, and to introduce environmental feasibility studies for
modern industrial investments, and to obligate everyone to the Iraqi environmental
determinants, conditions and specifications.
