Dr Steven McCabe and Beverley Nielsen, Associate Professors at Birmingham City University continue the environment theme with a focus on manufacturing.

They write, “The world’s population faces a crisis of immense proportion due to emission of greenhouse gases. Scientific evidence, coupled with our direct experience of altering weather patterns, demonstrates the need for urgent and radical collective action to avert climate change. Manufacturing, a sector which developed rapidly following the Industrial Revolution, and though contributing to improving the lives of billions since, has, through intensive use of energy and resources, been a significant contributor to pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.”

The actual experience, practical advice, insights and suggestions make the book a must-read.
