The newly updated, second edition “Environmental Management in Organizations”, is a well read and highly regarded publication, which is effectively the standard textbook for those studying for IEMA membership and Chartered Environmentalist status, as well as enjoying frequent use as a valuable reference for experienced environmental professionals.
The new edition provides the management tools, performance measures and communication strategies for organisations to manage their environmental responsibilities effectively. Leading experts on each topic provide focused explanations and clear practical guidance, as well as setting out the context and the key environmental and management drivers. This edition significantly updates the original handbook to take account of developments in the environmental agenda, including new dedicated chapters on climate change, energy, transport, biodiversity and chemicals.
Jon Pullen’s updated chapter on environmental monitoring, and the name-check for RPS, further strengthens RPS’ status as experts in the specialist fields of monitoring and measurement of air quality, odour, noise and greenhouse gases. “We use this detailed knowledge to design monitoring strategies and properly interpret complex datasets within the air quality & odour assessments, noise assessments, health impact assessments and carbon assessments that we provide our clients to support planning applications, EIAs and Environmental Permit application” says Jon.
The 2011 IEMA Handbook is available from the publishers, Earthscan, and on Amazon.
