With a growing commitment to environmental awareness and protection on the part of corporations and governments, there has never been a greater need for an integrated toolkit and management framework for achieving long-term sustainability targets.

Dixon Thompson responds to this need by presenting a set of twenty-two environmental management tools that can be applied to a local, national, and international situation. Each tool is described using specific examples, in addition to highlighting the legal requirements and standards, and how best to apply each tool. Included as well is an exhaustive list of newsletters, journals, and useful references for staying informed and up-to-date with a host of environmental issues.

Tools for Environmental Management: A Practical Introduction and Guide is essential for industry professionals charged with environmental responsibilities, academics and students, or anyone concerned with environmental stewardship.
