Environmental managers often find it difficult to assess investments in pollution prevention programs or equipment. This book provides basic economic and accounting principles to sharpen the skills that both small and large businesses can use to evaluate and financially justify investment in pollution prevention. Environmental engineers and managers will gain practical information on how to allocate resources and obtain investment capital from outside sources. Extensive use is made of current environmental issues through examples and case studies to illustrate and explain how economics impact the bottom line. Strengths and weaknesses of standard cost/benefit measures such as life-cycle costing net present value, payback period, and others are clearly spelled out. Time-saving ways to perform analyses are included.
