Book Description

Holistic in approach and rooted in the real world Ecological Economics and Industrial Ecology presents a new way of looking at environmental policy; exploring the relationship between ecological economics and industrial ecology.

Concentrating on the conceptual background of ecological economics and industrial ecology, this book:

  • provides a selection of recommendations for a product-oriented environmental policy, based on the author’s case study of the IPP

A topical and critical review, this book should be read by academics and policy makers alike, specifically those engaged with the concepts surrounding sustainable development and the rationale for more restrictive environmental policies.
