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:

* 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
