Environmental management and organisations

Environmental management and organisations

Introduction

It is believed that environmental management requires action at all levels, including by organisations of all types and sizes. However, it is not always clear what we mean by environmental management, or the roles that organisations do or could play. This unit explores the different interpretations and viewpoints involved by using systems thinking to provide a framework with which to better understand environmental management and organisations.

This OpenLearn course is an adapted extract from the Open University course T219 Environmental management 1 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
