FROM THE BLURB
The threat of global climate change and its potential dangers are looming large and cannot be wished away, but has to be faced squarely and sensibly. It is in this context that this volume seeks to highlight some of the innovative measures being taken by Indian industry for effective environmental management, including pollution control, water conservation, waste water utilization, energy efficiency and the like.
The focus on cleaner processes and systems, rather than end-of-pipe solutions, has come to be accepted as a more effective strategy, but still needs to be adopted and put into practice on a far wider scale. The fact that each of the initiatives has also yielded financial gains only goes to confirm the adage that ?it pays to be environment-friendly?. This compendium contains 25 case studies from some of the leader of Indian industry both in the public and private sectors. The case studies have been classified into four broad categories: environmental management system, process improvement, water/waste water management, and waste management and resource conservation.
