ISO 14001 Has Positive Impact on Consumer Products

Virginia Shuey Vergani writes that, when representatives of more than 150 countries gathered in Genoa in June 2001, their purpose was to agree upon procedures for implementing the Kyoto Protocol. Vergani reports that there is a small but growing number of EU companies that have obtained registration to ISO 14001 to actually make themselves more competitive and to increase market share as a result of improvements to processes and products attributable to their EMS efforts. She provides a detailed look at four very different organizations to examine the efforts they have undertaken to turn their EMS and QMS registration efforts into business and product improvement efforts.
