Interest in problems of environment and sustainability has grown considerably in the developing world, as the Sustainable Development Goals emphasizes them. This paper outlines some viewpoints of neoclassical economists on environmental problems, reviews the arguments there, and examines how the “commitment principle,” one of Teranishi’s ideas, should be understood among the arguments. In particular, the “commitment principle” might be closely associated with Amartya Sen’s idea on one of the person’s rational will:“ commitment.” Teranishi’s“ commitment principle,” however, still remains to be examined. Based on Sen’s arguments, or by cultivating his own idea, Teranishi’s“ commitment principle” is expected to be explored further for future environmental studies.
