Safeopedia explains Environmental Management

The main aim of environmental management is to ensure that we leave the planet in a healthy state for future generations and to help preserve all forms of life, including marine life and vegetation. To do so, environmental managers need to consider the carbon footprint of the current human generation and look at ways to minimize any irreversible damage we are leaving behind. One of the main studies of environmental managers is investigating possible renewable sources of energy, to ensure there is enough fossil fuel, which takes millions of years to regenerate, left once our generation is gone.
