Environmental Management Strategies


Environmental Management Strategies
This is a comparative study of the environmental management activities and strategies adopted by firms in the United Kingdom and Germany. As well as looking at what firms in the two countries do to manage their impact on the environment, the study asks what influences them do it, and what prevents them from doing more.  Walter Wehrmeyer, Marcus Wagner, Carlos Pacheco, and Stefan Schaltegger find that firms in the UK and Germany are at very similar stages in their approaches to environmental management - with attention focused on energy use reduction, and recycling.  Procedures such as the use of waste streams from other firms, the substitution of non-renewable materials, and green product design were equally rare in both countries. "Environmental Management Strategies: Britain and Germany Compared" is published by the Anglo-German Foundation.
