    Elements of Environmental Management provides managers and those in similar positions with a general understanding of key environmental and management concepts and principles. This book covers the most important topics for business and industry and allows someone from just about any discipline to become conversant with these topics.”
    John F. Katers, Director, Environmental Management and Business Institute, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay

    Elements of Environmental Management is a high-level introduction to environmental management issues. This is an ambitious undertaking, and Werner Antweiler has done an excellent job pulling all of this information together into one book.”
    Cory Searcy, Environmental Applied Science and Management Program, Ryerson University

    Elements of Environmental Management provides a critical link between economics and corporate strategy in the area of environmental management. The economic models underpinned with real-world examples of implementation dovetail very nicely with short strategy case studies. Students using this textbook will be well-prepared for roles in government, in industry, or in non-governmental organizations.”
    Andrew Leach, Enbridge Professor of Energy Policy, Alberta School of Business
