Answer:

In my early days of work in the chemical industry my company changed a procedure for terminating the chemical reaction in order to increase productivity. Sometime after that change we realized that the amount of dangerous chemical compounds in the wastewater increased a lot. We had a normal operation working with several environmental aspects identified, then we decided to make a change and that change in the way of work changed the environmental aspects. Another change could be a change in a recipe, or a change in raw materials or a change of suppliers. Your organization can be an importer of goods made in another continent, with some environmental aspects due to distance of a long supply chain. If your organization decides to start to buy the goods locally those environmental aspects will change.
