Abstract

Construction industry is considered as one of the main contributor of natural resources depletion, responsible for high level pollution and it is one of the attributes that pose climate changes and other environmental threats. A lot of efforts had and have been done to reduce and control these impacts. project environmental management (PEM) includes the processes required to ensure that the impacts of of the project execution to the surrounding environment will remain within the limit stated in legal permits. The main aim of most of researches conducted managing Environmental Impacts (EI) is to protect earth planet from pollution. Those researches are presenting four major environmental element; Environmental Management System (EMS), Environmental Design (ED), Environmental Planning (EP), Environmental Impacts Assessments (EIA). Although everything has been said about environmental management for construction project, but almost everything remains to be said and therefore to be explored or rediscovered because incontestably, almost everything remains to be done. This paper aimed at reviewing some of what has been said about PEM. Also one of its objectives is to explore and rediscover the whole view of managing the EI problems by proposing a framework that based on the relation between these environmental researches.
