About this book

This book explores in detail responses to three sets of environmental issues (climate change, air quality and contaminated land) at the global, national and regional-local levels. It also addresses various approaches to dealing with other environmental problems, including traditional regulation, partnership approaches, voluntary agreements and market-based instruments.

This fascinating and illuminating book is replete with sophisticated analysis of the business environment interface. It is objective and pragmatic, but never takes its eye off the fundamental challenge to business and society posed by the imperative of sustainable development. A state-of-the-art account of this complex area,: Paul Ekins, Director, Forum for the Future
