About this book

Environmental issues can present some daunting operational concerns for all types of organization, whether in the private, public and voluntary sectors. Managing them requires environmental professionals with a working knowledge of the rapidly developing body of regulatory measures. This new edition of "Environmental Management in Organizations" provides all the management tools, performance measures and communication strategies that organizations need to manage their environmental responsibilities effectively. Leading experts on each topic provide focused explanations and clear practical guidance, as well as setting out the context and the key environmental and management drivers. This edition significantly updates the original handbook to take account of developments in the environmental agenda, including new dedicated chapters on climate change, energy, transport, biodiversity and chemicals. This title is published in association with IEMA.

This second edition of the handbook is most welcome. It brings the whole subject up to date and remains an indispensable reference and toolkit for environmental practitioners. It sets out the issues and context, and provides practical guidance for understanding and tackling environmental management effectively. It will be invaluable for anyone seeking to become a Chartered Environmentalist.
- John Gregory, Chair, Society for the Environment
