A practical book that offers insight to practitioners and students, as to why environmental management systems (EMSs) have been developed, how large organizations implement them, and the barriers that can hamper their effectiveness. The book covers the way EMSs are structured to achieve continuous improvements in environmental performance, including practical advice for businesses that wish to achieve accreditation; key issues that companies or those studying EMSs should be aware of in order to ensure that optimum benefits are gained from the use of an EMS; different strategies that companies may adopt to achieve an EMS; and the challenges that arise when trying to integrate EMSs into the business strategy. There is also a review of tools for modelling and forecasting EMS effectiveness, and case studies of companies that have implemented their own EMS, the different approaches that they have taken and the resulting issues that have emerged.
