If somebody says: We have to find out if they are going to support the new environement.
Can support new environement mean "accept" ? accept new environement? Or maybe it has something to do with money?
There was a company which wanted to take over another company. And the ones who wanted to take over the company wondered if their part-owners (of the company which was going to be taken over) were going to support the new environment (probably new management etc).
The meaning of "the environment" is the problem here.
It can mean the environment within the company, as in the work environment, or it can be the greater environment as it concerns the world.
Is there more to the sentence as in "support the new environmental decisions or initiatives"?
I think it's the environement within the company.
But doess "support" here may mean "accept"? Or support them financially?
If you think it is the environment within the company, then accept is also acceptable. The financial support would have been figured out when the company was purchased.
