Increasingly industry, government and the community sees the critical need for environmental management. We have many techniques to manage specific parts of the environment, such as methods for controlling the salinity of ground water, and reducing energy consumption. However, rather than reacting to specific environmental problems, we also need tools to guide the many activities that take place in our society. These tools assess the environmental changes that may come from activities, and provide processes for reducing environmental impacts. Environmental Management: Processes and Practices for Australia provides understanding of the main approaches to Environmental Management that come from the areas broadly classed as social science, policy, system, or administrative. Specifically the focus is on the systems and processes that are used to guide the more technical elements of environmental management. This means looking at the 'big picture' of how to bring about broad environmental improvement through managing what organisations do: whether these organisations are government, private businesses, or within the general community. This second edition of Environmental Management: Processes and Practices in Australia retains the focus and coverage of the first edition, but provides updated information about the developing management tools, such as corporate responsibility, and directions in government programs. Additional case studies have been included as have practitioners' reflections. The overall content covers: context for the development of Environmental Management and its relationship to international environmental policy environmental policy in the public and private spheres frameworks of Environmental Management risk, and life cycle analysis; the key systems of Environmental Impact Assessment, and Environmental Management Systems plus environmental reporting, and auditing Importantly, a chapter is devoted to the changes in organisations that will have to be thought about if Environmental Management is to be an integral part of the organisation's operations.
