This volume focuses on the interaction between business, the environment, government regulators and technology, describing the greening of industry in the USA, Japan and the EU and the way in which environmental management is being applied. Following a review of the essential role that financial institutions have to play in this field, the book concludes with an examination of the way in which the regulators are also having to change in order to meet the dual challenge of environmental improvement and the drive for increased industrial competitiveness.
