As businesses face an increasing array of environmental challenges, including climate change, air and water pollution, and solid waste management, environmental management has become an increasingly important area of expertise. Elements of Environmental Management is an interdisciplinary textbook for students and business professionals that integrates corporate environmental strategy with environmental economics, environmental law, and environmental engineering.

Written by Werner Antweiler, an expert on international trade and environmental economics, Elements of Environmental Management approaches environmental issues from a business perspective: How can businesses respond to public policies and regulatory requirements? How does emission trading work? What technological options are available to prevent or mitigate pollution? Using examples from a wide range of industries, Antweiler presents the essential tools for examining environmental problems from a business perspective.

Werner Antweiler is an associate professor in the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia.

Editorial Reviews

"Elements of Environmental Management provides a critical link between economics and corporate strategy in the area of environmental management. The economic models underpinned with real-world examples of implementation dovetail very nicely with short strategy case studies. Students using this textbook will be well-prepared for roles in government, in industry, or in non-governmental organizations." - Andrew Leach, Enbridge Professor of Energy Policy, Alberta School of Business
