About the Authors
  • This textbook presents key theoretical approaches to understanding issues of sustainability and environmental management, perfectly bridging the gap between engineering and environmental science. It begins with the fundamentals of environmental modelling and toxicology, which are then used to discuss qualitative and quantitative risk assessment methods, and environmental assessments of product design. It discusses how business and government can work towards sustainability, focusing on managerial and legal tools, before considering ethics and how decisions on environmental management can be made. Students will learn quantitative methods while also gaining an understanding of qualitative, legal, and ethical aspects of sustainability. Practical applications are included throughout, and there are study questions at the end of each chapter. PowerPoint slides and jpegs of all the figures in the book are provided online. This is the perfect textbook on environmental studies for engineering and applied science students.

    • Includes both quantitative and qualitative aspects of environmental sustainability that a well-rounded engineering or applied science graduate should know
    • Provides study questions at the end of each chapter to ensure that the reader is learning, which will appeal to both instructors and students
    • Offers a scientific perspective of sustainability by bridging engineering and environmental science
