Based on the first edition with extensive analysis of practical applications of ISO 14000 and environmental compliance management systems, this second edition of International Environmental Risk Management reflects updates made in ISO 14001 and makes available a frame of reference and systematic approach to effectively manage environmental risk. It provides a pathway for readers to understand and systematically implement environmental management systems that symbiotically support: enterprise risk management programs; compliance, anti-bribery, and legal management systems; and product stewardship, carbon footprint assessments, and sustainability programs. This book provides in depth discussions of ways to use global environmental management standards.

New Features in this Edition:

  • Combines EMS standards with discussion of specific principles, other authors’ research, and guidelines on management practices.
  • Provides guidelines on how to prepare for, anticipate, and resolve environmental issues.
  • Includes easily understandable information for all readers and is not simply aimed toward individuals who are knowledgeable about this topic.
  • Provides an in-depth discussion of ways to use global environmental management standards to manage impacts and risk, as well as legal strategies and voluntary initiatives that companies can utilize to minimize risk.
  • Shows the substantive revision of ISO 14001 and reflects all changes in the second edition.

As a growing and rapidly changing field, it is necessary to address new issues, guidelines, and regulations to assist businesses, academia, students, consultants, lawyers, and environmental managers with the pragmatic resolution to environmental and risk management issues. This second edition gives a broad and detailed analysis of the changes made to ISO 14001 and serves as an excellent guide in managing environmental risk.
