Corporations face a fast-changing legal and regulatory framework concerning the environment and prevention is a better strategy than being responsible. During a carefree era for corporations, Responsible, but not guilty" rang like a thunderclap to neighborhood's facing damages. By applying the principle that polluters should pay, courts have recently assigned private and public organizations with the legal duty of protecting the environment. How do we calculate biodiversity 's economic value? Are the polluters of our waterways paying? Obviously not. International waste-management firms assume societal responsibility by controlling the processes for treating and recycling waste, by implementing better practices, and by adopting codes of professional ethics that set minimum standards. A few of the strategies of international groups are analyzed. The Safran Group, through its subsidiaries, is trying to formulate concrete responses and prepare the future. Involved in many fields of research with a strong potential for innovation ranging from nanotechnology to nuclear power the French Atomic Energy Commission has to analyze and control risks and increase the conservation of resources. The metal industry has long been involved in conserving the environment and limiting the risks taken by its personnel, and this book details their current contribution and objectives in relation to corporate environmental responsibility. For example, how to do with the problems raised in terms of environmental health by defining specifications for soil referents. This book, coordinated by Xavier Cuny, was written by over 20 international authors, all of whom are environmental specialists; executives, researchers and economists present an overview and original proposals.
