From the Publisher:

The second edition of this practical book provides advice on how to assess at what stage a company is at in its compliance and map out a route to implement the standards. The book illustrates how good corporate environmental practice can give a company a competitive edge. Aimed at those within businesses who are concerned with compliance, this second edition provides practical advice on how to arrange company practices to comply with the recently introduced British Standards Institute requirements for environmental management and the equivalent standards emanating from Brussels (EMAS). Guiding the reader through the issues that would be addressed, this book offers practical advice on problem solving. Do's and Don'ts, Questions and Answers, and Practical Hints are included.

From the Inside Flap:

Environmental Management for Business Linda Spedding In the past few years the terms "eco-management" and "eco-auditing" have become widely known in the business community. Yet, in many cases they have still not gone beyond the "good idea but difficult to implement" phase. However, a general understanding of environmental issues is no longer enough. Specific application is vital. New organisations are being formed and new rules and standards are being brought into force at national and international level, such as:

  • the EU’s Environmental Management and Auditing Scheme (EMAS)
  • British Standard BS7750
  • the imminent International Standard ISO14001
It has now become imperative that all businesses, large or small, learn what is required of them at the practical level. Environmental Management for Business addresses this issue in a clear and accessible manner while at the same time offers invaluable advice on how to maximise the benefits of compliance for any business wishing to implement an effective environmental management policy. Environmental management need not be regarded as only serving the onerous requirements of strict legislation - Environmental Management for Business shows how it can actually provide companies with a competitive edge. Good environmental practice can mean good business practice. The author, who has a broad understanding of the difficulties in combining business and legal requirements gleaned from years of experience as both an environmental lawyer and consultant, provides the UK and international reader with a comprehensive guide to best environmental practice through a combination of guidelines, key questions, checklists and case studies. In addition, the author looks at advances in information technology in the environmental arena and considers some of the likely trends and issues in future environmental management.
