Future trends in environmental management. Paperback: 474 pages.

Environmental performance, environmental risk and its management are of contemporary interest, but to date there is limited evidence on their relationships. This paper is the first to provide detailed insights by adopting a content analysis approach and disaggregating firm-level environmental risk into types related to regulations, operations and nature. For a sample of US firms in polluting sectors, descriptive findings show that the level of risk and the likelihood of active risk management differ in the type considered

What are the top ten environmental problems facing the world today? A recent scientific paper published in Nature attempted to answer this question, with a twist. Many experts believe that water depletion will be one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century. By 2025, the number is expected to reach one half to two thirds of the human population, thanks to a combination of many factors, including water pollution, climate change, and water depletion from unsustainable water uses.

Specialists from throughout the field have contributed their first-hand accounts and actual case studies to give a balanced overview of how environmental management issues affect everyone in an organization. From senior EH&S managers to chemical engineers to academics and consultants, these authors share their actual experiences to offer you a roadmap for successful planning. Moving away from a regulations-driven viewpoint, Environmental Management Strategies: The 21st Century Perspective takes a proactive view that integrates environmental issues into the fabric of the organization at every level.

The field of health, safety and the environment is a complex arena, and it refreshing to see a book that was written with the intent to inform, without being boring or pontificating. The case studies are real, the information found in the appendices is an added source of valuable information, while the footnotes in each chapter provide a good tie in to related books and articles. It is well worth its price, which is a bargain by technical book standards. If I were a college professor, I would use it as a textbook for its rich sources of information.

If your company hasn't already tapped you to be involved in its environmental management effort, your reaction to the mention of ISO 14001 may range from dismissal (What's it got to do with me?) to dispassionate interest (I guess it's a good idea, but my plate's already full.). Gabriele Crognale explains in simple terms why many companies have embraced the concept of environmental management -- and why today's managers need to be aware of what's happening in this field. The book identifies opportunities, management practices, methodologies, and innovative strategies that organizations can implement to improve their environmental management performance. The logic is that if organizations display a strong commitment to sound environmental practices, they can defuse the traditional "command and control" enforcement applied by regulatory agencies. In a total quality organization, sound environmental practices are a shared commitment that makes good business sense. This book explains the issues and provides solid, hands-on guidance for helping your organization as it takes the next step in improving environmental quality.

Many environmental management books in print today, and even some books on the new wave of sustainability, lack the depth and detail that the author provides in his book. His choices of co-authors are a good blend to the mix and depict practical insight into their operations and how they address environmental management and sustainability issues. Practical insight can be gleaned from such diverse companies and industries as HP, Gilette, IBM, ST Microelectronics, Chevron and Texaco, and how each of them addresses environmental management issues as well as how they applied their lessons learned to improve.

Of note, one local university uses excerpts of the book in one of its environmental maangement classes, and was impressed with how specific chapters lend themsleves well to these classes, here in 2007.

Read how Fortune 500 companies have evolved their corporate environmental, health & safety policies into fully-integrated HES management systems -- saving their company money and improving employee morale.
The case studies are written by people who lived through the changes, which makes the comments particularly insightful.

Environmental Management Strategies, The 21st Century Perspective, Volume 5 is an asset to any environmental managers' bookshelf. It is very readable while being stuffed with applicable information pertaining to environmental management. It offers a good picture of recent business trends that incorporate environmental practices that often go beyond straightforward compliance. The book also illustrates the possible benefits of companies applying forward thinking regarding environmental management using case studies of successful companies. In addition practical information pertaining to OSHA, EH&S, and EPA requirements are included.
