Environmentalism contains thousands of overseas environmental teams, hundreds of thousands of nationwide teams, and tens of millions of neighborhood ones. it is also countless numbers of overseas agreements, 1000s of nationwide environmental firms, and numerous environmental sections in different organizations—from these in multinational enterprises to ones in nearby and foreign firms. Such environmental strategies as sustainable improvement, the precautionary precept, company social accountability, and eco-labeling percolate from all of those resources. each year, new principles, refinements, regulations, associations, markets, and difficulties proceed to go into into environmental debates and discourses, making it approximately very unlikely to maintain abreast of the alterations continuously taking place.
The A to Z of Environmentalism is a paperback version of the Historical Dictionary of Environmentalism. It strategically skips throughout matters, suggestions, time, corporations, and cultures, no longer with any pretense of manufacturing a definitive dictionary yet quite with the purpose of manufacturing an inclusive, wide-ranging, and international heritage of environmentalism. This aim is complete via a chronology, an introductory essay, and over three hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries.
