Overview

Corporate environmental policies are not simply a short-lived trend playing against the perceived antagonism between business and environmental concerns. Due to federal and state environmental legislation, and the ways in which environmentally friendly practices have benefited businesses in many ways, corporate environmental policies are becoming a basic feature of corporate agendas. Corporate Environmental Policies is a compilation of the complete texts of the environmental policies from some of the leading corporations currently doing business. The policy statements are anywhere from a few sentences to many detailed pages, but each forms the backbone of the corporation's interaction with its employees, customers, and regulatory agencies, and is often a required first step for participation with environmental standards. Each entry includes brief contact and line-of-business information, as well as information about the corporation's participation with legislation and industry environmental standards. Includes environmental policy statements from 225 corporations from 20 countries throughout the world, among them Amoco, AT&T, The Body Shop, Ford, and Proctor & Gamble. Most are industry leaders in terms of size and innovation, and many have made headlines with their environmental practices. An important collection for researchers and business people who will be involved with the future interaction between business and the environment.
