The Publications Department of the
National Pollution Prevention Center for Higher Education
is happy to announce a new resource:
The Pollution Prevention Educational Resource Compendium in
STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT
This compendium contains six documents, all of which may be
ordered separately. Please share this message with colleagues
interested in applying environmental responsibility to strategy,
in industry as well as in academia. Thank you!
1. "Introduction to the Strategic Environmental Management Compendium"
discusses how to add environmental responsibility to management
strategies such as competition and portfolio analysis. The
author suggests specific compendium materials for each topic.
Also included are these brief notes: "What is SEM?" "Competitive
Analysis: Key Concepts," and "Pollution Prevention: Overcoming
Barriers to Success." The price is $1.50 (U.S.).
2. "Resource List for Strategic Environmental Management" is organized
around topics such as competitiveness, eco-integrated portfolio
analysis, and value creation. The List cites 60 books, articles,
reports, cases, and websites; detailed information on contacting
publishers of materials not commonly found in your library; and
contact information for nine mentor faculty. The cost is $1.00
3. "Environmental Marketing Annotated Bibliography" is organized
alphabetically. It describes all documents cited in the Resource
List. The cost is $1.50 (U.S.).
4. "Syllabi" include detailed outlines of strategic environmental
management syllabi by Stuart Hart (Michigan), Doug Lober (Duke),
Alfie Marcus (Minnesota), and Forest Reinhardt (Harvard). The
cost is $6.00 (U.S.).
5. "Case Studies: Ringer, Deluxe, and Osmonics" illustrate the
"high-value" strategy in three businesses that have environmental
aspects: Ringer produces alternative lawn-and-garden products,
Deluxe is a printer that creates a pollution-free ink, and
Osmonics manufactures water-quality filtration devices. All
have developed environmentally superior products or services but
achieve different levels of success. Students can analyze the
"green" vs. "black" aspects of these businesses' portfolios and
suggest a course of action for each. Discussion questions and
teaching notes are provided for all cases. The cost for all
three cases is $3.50 (U.S.).
6. "Student Assignments" are four brief sets of questions that faculty
can use with the cases included in the compendium or with other
cases cited therein:
- "Reducing Resource Use and Waste per Unit of Production:
Comparing Pollution Prevention at 3M, Dow, and Polaroid"
- "The Seven S's: Further Analysis of the Dow Case"
- "Analyzing Environmental Aspects of Businesses:
Ringer, Osmonics, and Deluxe"
- "Eco-Integrated Portfolio Analysis"
The cost for all four assignments is $2.00 (U.S.).
