Synopsis

Information Systems and the Environment by National Academy of Engineering, National Academy of Sciences

Information technology is a powerful tool for meeting environmental objectives and promoting sustainable development. This collection of papers by leaders in industry, government, and academia explores how information technology can improve environmental performance by individual firms, collaborations among firms, and collaborations among firms, government agencies, and academia. Information systems can also be used by nonprofit organizations and the government to inform the public about broad environmental issues and environmental conditions in their neighborhoods. Several papers address the challenges to information management posed by the explosive increase in information and knowledge about environmental issues and potential solutions, including determining what information is environmentally relevant and how it can be used in decision making. In addition, case studies are described and show how industry is using information systems to ensure sustainable development and meet environmental standards. The book also includes examples from the public sector showing how governments use information knowledge systems to disseminate a /best practicesa beyond big firms to small businesses, and from the world of the Internet showing how knowledge is shared among environmental advocates and the general public.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
