The clear, concise and informative text, written in a lucid and straightforward style, explains the importance of environmental management in the context of sustainable economic development. Beginning by giving an overview of problems, issues and the objectives of corporate environmental management, the book deals with corporate environmental challenges and the responses thereof in relation to the atmosphere, land, water bodies, and the effects of biotechnology. The challenges arising from other stakeholders have also been suitably dealt.
The text then explains the need for and effects of environmental regulations in India and all the international environmental developments up to Climate Summit (COP27 held in 2022). The Climate Change and its devastating impact throughout the world and the possible remedial measures, such as, Green Hydrogen, stepping up green energy towards net-zero emissions, have been analyzed.
Conceptually, the chapters on ‘Corporate Environmental Management for Sustainable Development’ and ‘Accounting and Reporting of Corporate Environmental Management’ are very rich in content and analysis. New case studies on ITC (2022) and ESG Reporting of Steel Authority of India Ltd. (2021–2022) indicate a new direction to the environmental reporting. They are internationally competitive.
The newly designed chapter seven discusses some emerging topics, such as Green Economy and Green Accounting, Carbon Accounting, Carbon Credit and Carbon Credit Trading in India, and also, Global Warming and Climate Change. The revised and enlarged edition is now a complete text-cum-reference book on corporate environment management.
Accordingly, the author has suggested two course outlines in the Appendix, one for undergraduate students, and the other for postgraduate students, for sensitizing the young minds to make them worthy citizens of the world.
