Covers the most recent topics in the field of environmental management and provides a broad focus on the theoretical and methodological underpinnings of environmental management

The last few decades have seen a tremendous increase in the anthropogenic pressures on the environment.  The result has been widespread environmental degradation, along with increasing negative social and economic impacts, especially on the vulnerable sections of the population, not only in the United States, but all around the globe.  Although environmental management concepts have been around since the 1970s, it is mostly in recent years that they have become ubiquitous. Thus far, the efforts to combat environmental problems have been predominantly piecemeal and top-down; consequently both the reception of environmental policies and their effectiveness have been less than satisfactory in most cases. 

An Integrated Approach to Environmental Management is intended to be the first and only scholarly book positioned as a leading text book, as well as a specialist reference resource of academic information and analysis on environmental management from multiple perspectives, highlighting cutting edge research, new concepts and theories, and fresh practical ideas and initiatives that can be readily applied in societies and organizations. 

With contributions by leading experts in their fields An Integrated Approach to Environmental Management features topics on:

Principles of Geology, Biology, Soil Science, Chemistry, and Engineering as applied in environmental management research and practices

Green Energy, Climate Change, and Green Architecture

Elements of sustainable business, such as Green Marketing, Corporate Social Responsibility, Socially Responsible Investing, Environmental Economics

Environmental Ethics, and Environmental Law and Policy

Common methods and tools used in environmental management research and practice, including Statistics, Geographic Information Systems, Remote Sensing, Life Cycle Analysis, and Environmental Auditing

Today, increasing concerns about the environment are leading legislators, regulators, communities, corporations, and consumers to make new choices in terms of scientific research priorities, engineering investments, infrastructure and regulations, purchasing patterns, product usage and disposal behavior, to name a few of many. An Integrated Approach to Environmental Management - by simultaneously adopting multiple perspectives and by striving to unify them, through a rigorous examination of the underlying interconnections - provides a much-needed integrative thrust that clarifies and crystallizes the subject of environmental management, and provides a convenient one-stop compendium consisting of theories, analytical techniques and applications drawn from natural sciences and engineering, social sciences and policy, and business and economics.
