Further information

‘This is a comprehensive volume with 36 chapters and contributions from 58 authors. . . For many in the business field this volume will be very useful. It will also be of great value to students, not just of environmental management, but also of business, construction, politics and sustainable development where environmental issues and methods for handling them are becoming more and more embedded in the curricula.’
– Geoff O’Brien, International Journal of Environmental Studies

‘This is an excellent textbook, suitable as a core text for environmental engineers and environmental scientists but equally it should, in my opinion, be compulsory reading for all researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers regardless of their discipline because it has relevance for all. In fact, the book is so lively and understandable that everyone and anyone could and should read it. . . Clearly written by a team of recognised environmental authors drawn from around the world, it guides the reader through current thinking on the tools and techniques industry. . . As an academic, it is a delight to find a book to recommend that I know students will enjoy and one which addresses so many different elements of a diversity of university courses, while covering the most important areas of environmental technology and management. I am certainly using it to enhance and update the content of some of my own lectures.’
– Susan Haile, International Journal of Sustainable Engineering

‘This substantial collection draws together a very wide variety of literatures and practices. . . I would expect this book to be a popular purchase by academic libraries, principally as a core text.’
