sFrom England to Australia, Sweden to South Korea, the international business community is embracing ISO 14000, the most flexible approach to environmental management yet devised. While a growing number of organizations are adopting its guidelines—with tremendous results—many are still hedging, unsure whether the benefits of implementation are worth their time, resources, and attention. This authoritative reference, written by an expert in the field, provides the information you need as a business manager to not only determine the appropriateness of ISO 14000 for your company, but to take the right steps toward successful certification.
Currently endorsed by more than one hundred countries, ISO 14000 has been adopted by such leading multinational corporations as Ford, Sony, Volvo, and Rockwell International.

In point of fact, ISO 14000 was designed to do much more than reduce waste and resource consumption. A sound system for navigating and controlling environmental impact, ISO 14000 is currently regarded as an indispensable part of the global business scene, making it essential for companies and their managers to be aware of the intricate structure, proper applications, and far-reaching effects of this important series of standards.
