The book provides an opportunity for crossover marketing between environmental economics and environmental studies.

The book is rooted in the real world and takes an applied approach to a topical subject.

The emphasis on ecological economics sits well with our string reputation in the general field of heterodox economics.


Holistic in approach and rooted in the real world Ecological Economics and Industrial Ecology presents a new way of looking at environmental policy; exploring the relationship between ecological economics and industrial ecology.

Concentrating on the conceptual background of ecological economics and industrial ecology, this book:

  • provides a selection of recommendations for a product-oriented environmental policy, based on the author’s case study of the IPP
  • contributes to the development of a consistent body of knowledge regarding sustainable development.

A topical and critical review, this book should be read by academics and policy makers alike, specifically those engaged with the concepts surrounding sustainable development and the rationale for more restrictive environmental policies.
