Environmental management covers the management of environmental issues and the control of environmental impacts. This book is designed to provide practical assistance to companiesin the construction sector that are considering, or alreadytackling, environmental management. The guidance is presented in a modular format and describesall stages in the development of a formal environmental management system (EMS). It allows companies to address specific features, from simply developing an environmental policy through to managing the environmental impacts of supply chains. The topics are presented in a reader-friendly way, using a combination of texts, diagrams, tables and case studies. Thecase studies are a key feature and are drawn from construction companies of varying sizes, all of which have practical experience in implementing environmental management. The studies demonstrate the advantages gained by companies that integrate an EMS into their corporate culture and practices, and show how the companies have dealt with the challenges theyfaced. There are estimates on some of the costs and resources needed for successful implementation of an EMS. The book provides advice and support based on formalised standards, and there is a step-by-step guide to ISO 14001. However, the guidance is not intended to be prescriptive but rather presents a range of options from which companies may choose the solutions that best fit in with their business objectives and available resources. Environmental management in construction will be a valuableaddition to the libraries of contractors, corporate and project managers, designers and clients.
