Description The third in the series of BCO Guides, a set of practical, standard setting research publications, is a Best Practice Guide to Environmental Management. This latest BCO Guide advises on best practice in using natural resources efficiently and adopting measures to limit environmental impact. It is written for office designers, owners, operators and occupiers.

Environmental Management in offices goes beyond the functional office space and includes both construction and end of life. A key aim of this guide and the supporting work is to determine the requirements of environmental management from construction, through life and the end of the office.

This guide is not intended to cover all issues in great depth as there are many such environmental management guides available, rather it is intended to provide a route map for users highlighting the issues that need to be addressed and guidance on sources of information and processes. It is also intended that procedures and lessons learned from the case studies should be used to inform design.

The guide is illustrated throughout with best practice examples of environmental management in practice.

This Guide is not available as a free download for BCO members.
