  • The Environmental Assessment Process

    The Pollution Prevention and Abatement Handbook is intended to be used principally as input to the World Bank Group’s Environmental Assessment (EA) processes. This note outlines the key features of the EA procedure for World Bank projects. The IFC and MIGA follow the same overall policies but have somewhat different environmental analyses and review procedures (for details contact IFC’s or MIGA’s ...

  • Integrative environmental research and education

    This paper is based on the premise that without integration of knowledge across disciplines, without integration of research with education, and without dialogue between science and stakeholders, opportunities to bound the complexity of environmental processes will be missed. Without adequate integration, solutions to environmental challenges will be partial at best, and new problems and ...

  • Globalisation and environmental sustainability: an OECD perspective

    Recent debates about economic globalisation have focused attention on the environmental implications of that process. Some analysts see globalisation as a force for improving the environment, via technology development and diffusion, structural reforms, and the so-called "Kuznets curve" (in which rising incomes lead to increased demands for environmental quality). Others see the ...

  • What Is Wastewater Treatment?

    Each and every day, most people worldwide create wastewater. Whether cooking or bathing, washing clothes or using the lavatory, people are constantly creating wastewater with little consideration of where it goes - and how exactly it is returned to rivers and seas, often cleaner than it was coming in. Modern wastewater treatment is a much needed spot of good news in the environment. What most ...

  • Perspectives on a sustainable future

    This paper presents an integrated assessment study into global change and sustainable development. A global, integrated assessment model called TARGETS, is used to develop a range of global futures. The model is intended to assess a number of the most important links between social, economic and environmental processes on a global scale. A unique feature of the TARGETS model is that it contains ...

  • Report on Knowledge Exchange Workshops on an Ecosystem Services Approach

    The WATERS project aims to support the planning processes of decentralized environmental management, in particular to take better account of the pressures caused by future environmental change. To achieve this, VSO volunteers working in 4 districts (Nsjane, Chikhwawa, Salima and Karonga, in Malawi) are working closely with district officials to support their environmental district planning ...

  • Proximity, territory and sustainable management at the local level: an introduction

    This introductory article presents the general theme studied in this special issue of the IJSD, concerning the relations between proximity economics and sustainable environmental management at local level. Interest in this research theme has grown significantly in recent years because of the rising concern about the environment but also following the realisation that environmental processes and ...

  • Decision supporting model for the recovery of computer components

    Legislation with respect to the recovery and environmentally friendly processing of discarded products may be an opportunity for companies to increase profits by creating components from the discarded products. This research was directed to the profitability of the disassembly of some of the components of a product to use them in the assembly of new products or for service aims. In order to get ...

  • An intelligent system for green process design

    Growing environmental issues have motivated technological advances to reduce pollution from chemical processing plants. These include the use of process simulators to design an environmentally benign process that minimises the plant emissions. While these simulators offer a convenient way of simulating the plant's capability to support environmental studies. In this article, we present a novel ...

  • Addressing Environmental Justice in the Permitting Process

    On February 11, 1994, Executive Order 12898 Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations was issued. Executive Order 12898 calls on each Federal agency to make achieving environmental justice part of its mission. Since that time the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA or Agency) has developed and issued several plans and ...

  • The process and mechanism of urban environmental change: an evolutionary view

    This paper discusses how an evolutionary viewpoint can contribute to the understanding of the processes and mechanisms of urban environmental change. There are four major components in the urban environmental evolution concept: (a) cities can be viewed as complex systems that are subject to constant change, which constitutes a dynamic evolutionary process; (b) urban environmental profiles of ...

  • Organisational mechanisms in environmental management: an evolutionary analysis confronted with empirical facts

    In this paper, we analyse the development of corporate environmental management systems through the core elements of the emerging evolutionary theory of the firm. The environmental management process means a process by which organisations change their structures and cultures as a result of an interlinked effort of individual learning and organisational transformation. We propose that effective ...

  • An Environmental Product Declaration for the Italian Ceramics Industry - Case Study

    Confindustria Ceramica had to overcome a number of challenges when it came to their Product Environmental Footprint (EPD) process. Tackling an EPD project representing 82.6% of Italian ceramic tile production and communicating the environmental performance of Italian ceramic tiles in an objective and transparent manner were only two of those. Please, click here to download the case ...

  • Predicting the sensitivity of populations from individual exposure to chemicals: The role of ecological interactions

    Population responses to chemical stress exposure are influenced by nonchemical, environmental processes such as species interactions. A realistic quantification of chemical toxicity to populations calls for the use of methodologies that integrate these multiple stress effects. The authors used an individual‐based model for Daphnia magna as a virtual laboratory to determine the influence of ...

  • Canarina CUSTIC software · noise evaluations · introduction 3

    We will define the environmental impact that suffers a certain region as the difference among the future environmental situation of the place, after the realization of a project, and the environmental state of the area if this project had never taken place. The correct diagnosis of the impact demands to know all the elements implied in the environmental process. A study of environmental impact ...

  • Itella - Carbon footprint calculation with the help of Tofuture - case study

    Itella is a service business whose core competency lies in information and product flow management. One of the key issues on Itella´s responsibility agenda is the carbon footprint of its service products, e.g. letters, parcels, unaddressed mail, magazine delivery and hybrid mail services. Tofuture helped Itella to introduce systematic carbon footprint calculation by developing a system that ...
