Diederik Meijer and Fillipus De Jong (Editors)

Series: Environmental Science, Engineering and Technology
BISAC: SCI026000

During the last few decades, development of the environmental movement has been placing more and more pressure on firms to acknowledge, characterize, analyze and report upon environmental issues and impacts. Many organizations and enterprises are aware that environmental issues are becoming urgent in all aspects of social life. In an effort to protect the environment, environmental management measures have been introduced on both a mandatory and voluntary basis. Perceiving the benefits of compliance is crucial for firms to act in accordance with environmental laws and regulations. This new book gathers the latest research from around the globe in this field of study and focuses on related topics such as incentive-compatible targeting to improve effectiveness of environmental policies, antigenic/allergenic rubber proteins and environmental regulations, Chernobyl consequences and the efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
