    Environmental laws and regulations are extremely complex and difficult to understand. In order to comply with them, they need to be explained in layperson's terms. This handbook identifies many changes in regulations and recommends ways to apply and implement them. It contains the latest and most up-to-date environmental information divided into four volumes, each focused on Air, Water, Land, and Sustainability. Readers will find real-life examples for the most important aspects of environmental protection and a comprehensive coverage of all areas of environmental regulation and concerns.


    1. Discusses up-to-date legislation and examples of what to look for and how to present it in a compliance report. 
    2. Includes new areas which have become more highly regulated and are of current importance.
    3. Addresses a wider spectrum of issues that go beyond chemical-based contamination and environmental regulations and examines the impacts of climate change.
    4. Includes many real-life examples and case studies from industry and institutions that comply with environmental regulations.
    5. Global coverage of regulations which are very useful to companies that have expanded operations outside their country of origin.
