Description - Environmental Management Systems by Christopher Sheldon

This third edition of Sheldon and Yoxon's authoritative Environmental Management Systems (previously entitled Installing Environmental Management Systems) has been extensively revised to cover changes in international standards and other related developments in the field such as British Standard BS 8555. Drawing on the authors' extensive hands-on experience in both implementing and training others, it describes how such systems can be used to prioritize actions and resources, increase efficiency, minimize costs and lead to better, more informed decision making. Set out in a straightforward series of steps, it cuts through the jargon and demolishes the myths that surround this important management tool. The authors explain the importance of carrying out an initial environmental review, identifying cause and effect, understanding legislative and regulatory issues, developing a policy and defining objectives and targets. They also describe how to design an effective environmental management programme and implement a successful audit and review. Clear and concise, and packed with helpful practical examples and insider tips, it has become the standard manual for managers and consultants at all levels.
