About this book

Featuring contributions from 17 environmental experts, this text offers guidelines for planning and executing an environmental programme, and suggests how to deal with legal, regulatory, training, legislative, financial and public relations issues surrounding environmental management. The authors argue that effective business management practices are an integral part of any comprehensive environmental management programme. This text takes the field of environmental management beyond the technical and regulatory boundaries of enviromental compliance and suggests why corporations today can no longer afford to let the plethora of federal, state, and local government regulations dictate their business practices. The text focuses on the daily decision-making activities that affect a company's environmental status and provides methods for applying the management skills needed to take charge of a company's environmental fate. These include: minimizing environmental liability and reducing corporate exposure, managing risk through compliance programmes, managing an environmental programme, understanding the regulatory process, exploiting industry organizations and making financial decisions.
