Frequently, there is bad news regarding the environment, and the public will typically look for someone to blame.

Industries tend to be an easy target, because their processes usually involve activities with potentially significant negative impact on the environment. For businesses, the risk associated with the environment involve damage to reputation, legal liability concerns and cost escalation treatment, clean-up, etc.)

Environmental management is well recognized as an important support function to the activities of any organization, not only because of the importance of protecting the environment from harm, but also because of the growth in the direct and indirect costs of environmental incidents.

Safeguarding the environment is a concern for everyone, whether at work, or in the private domain.

The Introduction to Environmental Management has quickly established itself as the standard text for students taking the NEBOSH International Certificate in Environmental Management.

This book sets out to offer an introduction to the subject for all those who have environmental management as part of their employment duties, as well as those who are considering a career as an environmental management professional.
