About this book

Introduced in September 1996, ISO 14001 is an international standard on environmental management systems, and has widespread implications for businesses of all sizes around the world. This book records the thoughts and experiences of leading thinkers and practitioners in the field, on ISO 14001 - its advantages and disadvantages.

ISO 14001 and Beyond provides a unique overview of progress to date and gives the reader an informed look into the future - John Elkington, Chairman, SustainAbility. 'ISO 14001 and Beyond is an essential book for the forward-looking (and thinking) in the late 1990s and beyond' Oswald A. Dodds, Chairman, ISO/TC207/SC1 (EMS), Chairman, BSI Committee Responsible for BS7750. 'This is a timely and interesting work both for environmental management professionals and for all those interested in the business and environment debate' Jonathon Porritt, Forum for the Future. 'ISO 14001 and Beyond... reminds us that any standard is a benchmark for excellence and a catalyst for improvement and success. The case histories and the strategic reviews alone are a source of inspiration and competitive advantage' Claude Fussler, Vice President, Environmental, Health & Safety, DOW Europe. 'This lively and wide-ranging book provides the clearest account yet of the difference between a public commitment to a standard...and a proven commitment to actual environmental improvement. This book is timely indeed. Recommended' Martin Wright, Tomorrow"
