This text examines how businesses and the environment interact. It is ideal for students with no previous knowledge of business studies. It examines in depth the ways in which business, industry, the physical environment, environmentalism and social change have evolved alongside each other. The authors use boxed case-studies to highlight how business practice and the environment interact at levels from local to global, with examples from multinational companies, government bodies, national charities and local enterprise. The book also contains a large number of informative diagrams. The case studies include:
* Shell Oil's environmental policy
* railways and the industrial revolution
* the British National Trust's business enterprises
* Sainsbury's approach to organic foods
* Australia's landcare scheme
* changing trends in retailing
* Brent Spar
* big game hunting and conservation.

Industry Reviews

"The strengths of "Environment and Business include the clarity with which the authors make their points, enhanced by frequent subtle humor, particularly from chapter 3 onward. In addition, the figures and diagrams provide very effective visual depictions of relationships among concepts described in the text, while boxes present helpful case studies. "The Professional Geographer." ""Environment and Business is a coherent textbook (with appendixes of useful web sites and further reading), and it is among the best of those now available.." -Environment, December 2001
