Publisher Comments:

A thorough, accessible introduction to the discipline of environmental management.

The modern environmental manager is a multi-disciplined administrator whose areas of expertise encompass everything from technological know-how, to business and finance, to an understanding of federal, state, and local statutes and regulations. Fundamentals of Environmental Management incorporates a detailed understanding of each of these areas into a clear, integrated introduction to this dynamic and demanding discipline. Addressing the full spectrum of environmental affairs management issues, this comprehensive guide provides a balance of the practical advice and in-depth legal knowledge required to build and maintain a successful environmental management program in compliance with all levels of government requirements. It also discusses concepts for managing beyond compliance and provides solid recommendations on how to establish productive relationships with environmental agencies and other external stakeholders. This unique resource provides:

* Broad coverage of technical, legal, and business management aspects of environmental management.

* Detailed discussions of management responsibilities in each medium: air, water, and soil.

* A survey of all pertinent U.S. federal regulations, including RCRA, TSCA, CERCLA, the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act.

* Practical guidance on when and how to request permits, and which permits to request.

A powerful tool in the hands of environmental managers, plant managers, and environmental, health, and safety managers for manufacturing firms, Fundamentals of Environmental Management is also an excellent text for graduate students in environmental management programs and an important reference for environmental attorneys and consultants.

Synopsis:

Environmental management demands a combination of technological know-how, business acumen, logistical savvy of statutes and regulations, and a strong sense of cost-effectiveness. Ideally, managers should be able to handle problems in any medium (air, water, and soil), be able to prepare cost-benefit analysis for expenditure requests, and know which permits are needed when. This book covers all of these bases, forming an excellent introduction to the field.

Umweltmanagement ist eine Mischung aus technologischem Know-How, wirtschaftlichem Scharfsinn und Kenntnis des gesetzlichen Rahmens. Alle diese Themenkreise behandelt dieser Band ausführlich und präzise. (05/99)
