Overview

Environmental Management Systems (EMSs) offer an approach to regulatory policy that lies somewhere between free-market and traditional command-and-control methods. Worldwide, hundreds of thousands of private firms have adopted or are considering adopting these internally managed systems for improving environmental performance. In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency has established a special recognition for firms that adopt EMSs. Already, numerous state agencies have proposed or adopted 'green-tier systems' that allow firms with EMSs to be exempted from otherwise applicable requirements. Yet while private- and public-sector interest in EMSs is booming, limited empirical evidence is available about the efficacy of EMSs. To close the gap between advocacy and analysis, Regulating from the Inside brings together cutting-edge work of leading scholars, providing the most comprehensive analysis to date of environmental management systems. Intended to frame the future policy and the research agenda about EMSs, the discussions are organized around two critical questions: How have EMSs worked in firms that have already adopted them? What potential and limitations do they have as policy tools in the future? Addressing the arguments of both advocates and skeptics, the chapters examine why firms adopt EMSs; how firms implement EMSs; how EMSs answer concerns about fairness, corporate social responsibility, and sustainability; and what kind of impact EMSs may have on the global economy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This highly readable book offers the most thoughtful analysis to date of the role of environmental management systems in environmental protection. It is a valuable resource for professionals in business, government, and the non-profit sector.'
Robert Stephens, Chair, Multi-State Working Group on Environmental Management Systems

'The finest collection of thought on environmental management systems ever assembled. It brings together significant research and reflection, and should be widely read and discussed.'
Matthew Arnold, Chief Operating Officer, World Resources Institute

Booknews
Two professors of public policy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard U. have edited and written the introduction and conclusion to eight papers first presented at a November 1999 meeting in Washington DC organized by the Multi-State Working Group on Environmental Management Systems. The papers consider different approaches and applications of the environmental management systems adopted by private businesses, their feasibility on a large scale, their usefulness or cost in a global economy, the regulations of different states in the US, and why letting businesses monitor their environmental practice would save the government money. The contributors are academics and two graduate students in public policy analysis and two former researchers at the Environmental Law Institute. Annotation c.

    A Good Perspective About Environmental Management Systems

    The book represents a variety of viewpoints of sixteen authors including its two editors and focuses on the use of environmental management systems (EMSs) primarily in the private sector. It is well organized and presents the topic in a concise, balanced and informative way which is no easy task in a multi-authored text. Alhough primarily focused on the private sector, the book would have benefited by more discussion on the implementation of EMSs in the public sector, especially the federal government, since many federal agencies are just beginning to implement EMSs. The book fills a niche in the area of environmental policy and is a very useful text in the field since EMSs will be with us for some time.
