Bryan Jair Herrera Jordan, Jeverson Santiago Quishpe Gaibor


In this article, an investigation was carried out about the ethical approach within the ecological contamination in the Ecuadorian oil companies, since there is no clear vision about the impact that the impact of crude oil has on the main ecological zones of the country, of the In the same way, an ethical code is not established that supports bad professional practices on the part of the oil industry. A study was developed on the influence that ethics has on professional practice when carrying out the extraction and controlling the proper environmental safety standards to reduce the ecological impact in the exploitation areas. Information was compiled about the background of the oil industry in Ecuador, its main challenges and its techniques for collecting black gold. The contributions that were generated with this research lie in the awareness on the part of the industry in the ethical practice at the time of carrying out the extraction, as well as generating statutes within the control bodies that establish strong sanctions for those who fail to comply with the ethical code and of environmental responsibility at the time of carrying out the respective works. Implementing a preservation education can help to eradicate to some extent the high levels of pollution in the extraction sites, as well as protect the life of several natural and plant species native to or endemic to the area. It was established that the greatest polluter is the human being, this due to the excessive measures to obtain resources from the earth and not value the species that inhabit it.
