"It is hard to imagine an area of study or a discipline in which a basic knowledge of the issues would not be beneficial, since environmental concerns are very much in the public consciousness. And while everyone agrees that something must be done, the issues and, therefore, the solutions are not clear. Written at a level that is accessible to anyone, regardless of their technical background, Introduction to Environmental Management translates complex environmental issues into understandable terms. This book offers a complete understanding of regulations, pollutants, and waste management that will be useful in any industry or business. The non-technical presentation addresses all environmental issues, and the stand-alone chapters make it easy to zero in on the exact information you need."--Back cover.
