Abstract

This chapter indicates the advanced issues of environmental management; Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and life cycle costing; waste management, environmental sustainability, and environmental benefits; Solid Waste Management (SWM); electronic waste management; construction waste management; and the importance of Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSWM). Environmental management is a systematic strategy that companies can apply to find the different ways for saving water, energy, and materials, and for reducing the negative environmental impacts. Environmental management aims to prevent pollution, preserve natural resources, and reduce environmental risks toward creating an environmentally-friendly image with different stakeholders.
