ISO 14001 Environmental Systems Handbook Second Edition outlines the scope and
purpose of the standard, making it accessible to all. The author begins by explaining the
concepts of the standard, which sets the tone for a practical guide to implementation of
an ISO 14000-compliant environmental management system, which also covers the
consultant's and auditor's perspective. The case studies from industries that have
