About this book

Three major themes are explored: the origins and consequences of the major environmental problems that face economic activities; the major contextual and operational issues that confront business; and ways of improving the environmental performance of business and the role that such activities can play in local and regional development.

'This book is to be welcolmed as a rare contribution to this debate. Peter Roberts' concern in this book is to introduce the spatial element of analysis into the study of business-environment relations' - Urban Studies 'The major issues are addressed clearly and the complex interrelations discussed well. The discussion flows logically and easily and the different sections knit together well' - Andrew Gouldson, University of Hull 'Gives much food for thought for all those in control of business as well as for environmental managers, auditors and assessors' - Environmental Scientist 'Exceptionally accessible and should be very user-friendly for both students and lecturers with little detailed knowledge of the issues' - Social and Environmental Accounting 'This is a worthwhile introduction to current patterns of environmental management in business which can be recommend especially for students' - Town and Country Planning
