About this book

To reach environmental excellence, organisations must unlock and channel the ideas and energies of their staff. This can only be achieved through the effective leadership and commitment of senior managers and the development of sound team working throughout the organisation. To this end, forward-looking organisations have formulated a range of teams, including: environmental steering committees; environmental action teams; process improvement teams; and quality and environment circles. The aims of this book are to bring together practical experiences and theoretical developments in relation to the role of teamworking within the context of environmental management.

'Managing Green Teams speaks to several audiences. It is a worthwhile read for busy professionals seeking practical advice in short order ... practically every environmental professional -- be they government, nonprofit, or private sector employees -- will find at least a few chapters that directly relate to concerns in their organization ... as an overview of environmental teaming and a mix of time-tested theory with real-world advice, Managing Green Teams is on target and practical.' Corporate Environmental Strategy -- Elsevier's Journal of Environmental Leadership"
