Summary
  • "Talk about environmentalism to many decision-makers in American business today and you're likely to get a shrug or a remark about how "we're doing our part."" "As the 21st century approaches, however, some of the most innovative and farsighted companies in the world are turning environmental considerations into a competitive edge. Japanese companies, for instance, are producing five times less waste per dollar than their American counterparts and German companies produce half the waste of U.S. companies. Among the American exceptions is 3M's Pollution Prevention Pays (3P) program, which has saved over $400 million since its inception." "Enviro-Management clearly outlines the challenges and benefits of the new "green" corporate thinking, providing managers with a three-stage process all forward-thinking companies can initiate to keep in step with the times - going from compliance to cost reduction to finally using pollution management as a revenue generator." "Environmental managers will learn how to apply life cycle cost analysis to ecological concerns; a "Green Management Survey" and a "Pollution Wheel" that you can fill out to determine what sort of pollution program exists in your company and what is needed; scores of strategies and guidelines for achieving environmental profits through environmental auditing, energy conservation, waste management and more; dozens of case studies of companies that have reduced their environmental impact while improving their bottom line; a complete summary of current FTC environmental marketing guidelines; and a PCEQ workplace reduction guide."
  • "The time has come to put an end to the adversarial relationship between industry and the environment. Companies are saving money, reducing costs and increasing competitiveness by better management of their environmental resources - literally turning "green" into green. Enviro-Management is must reading for the environmental manager with lofty ideals and an eye on the bottom line."--Jacket
