Paperback. 656 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.3in.The link between business, production, commerce and environmental imperatives is becoming more and more obvious. Industry, the world over, is under pressure, like never before, from an unprecedented set of environmental laws. But, the fact is that only a few crusaders have managed to influence policy makers and opinion makers to devise the command and control regime. It became increasingly clear during the latter part of the twentieth century that current development models would not help create an appropriate milieu for progress that would maintain a desirable environment and ensure sustainable development. To bridge this gap, a proactive movement emerged in governing systems, including industry and community. This has entailed a paradigm shift in approach, popularly known as PEM, i. e. Preventive Environmental Management. Implicit in this paradigm is the twining of economic and environmental benefits. This book highlights the need for incorporating PEM approaches, characterized by community action at all levels of implementation. At the company level, PEM means adopting a holistic approach that includes diagnosing processes and systems for pollution hot-spots, interventions to reduce wastes at source, improving product quality and yield, enhancing waste treatment and value addition and integrating economic and environmental concerns of the stakeholders. What the book attempts is an interpretation of the present status of Indias environment with special reference to municipal and industrial operations. It also discusses the significance of appropriate tools and techniques that enable transition across the continuum of production, consumption, and environmental protection, as well as the preparedness of communities to monitor improved environmental quality. An expansive framework for resolving some prevailing dilemmas has also been proposed in this book. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
