The latest edition of IEMA's vital publication, the IEMA handbook, has been published.
This new version, entitled Environmental management in organizations, provides all the management tools, performance measures and communication strategies that organisations need to manage their environmental responsibilities effectively.
Leading experts on each topic provide focused explanations and clear practical guidance, as well as setting out 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.
Environmental management in organizations is a core text for the Associate Open Book Assessment (OBA), so if you are planning to take the June OBA paper, this publication is likely to prove invaluable.
