Abstract: This study provides a comprehensive analysis of scholarly papers pertaining to cultural, ethical, and religious viewpoints towards the preservation of the environment. Undoubtedly, the adverse impacts of the present environmental catastrophe on individuals' well-being and economic sustenance are universally acknowledged. The inadequate management of the environment has led to the occurrence of severe climatic fluctuations that are now being seen globally. The current scenario has pushed several parties, including environmentalists and governments, to actively explore viable strategies for mitigating and conserving the environment, with a focus on ensuring its sustainability for both present and future generations. This study asserts the significance of culture, ethics, and religion in the implementation of environmental preservation measures, based on a comprehensive examination of relevant scholarly literature.
