Marketplace Trends: ISO 14001 Registrations Break 2,000 Barrier in North America

Stewart Anderson writes that, as of May 15, 2001, the World Preferred Registry contained records of precisely 2,097 certificates of registration to ISO 14001 held by North American organizations. He notes that while growth rates throughout North America are solid, there are some differences in registration trends in each of the three countries, particularly with respect to Canada, and that ISO 14001 implementation and registration in each country is assuming a "vertical industry orientation". Anderson explores the factors driving registration in North America, provides data on the top industry categories for EMS registrations in North America and analyzes the implications of these patterns and what they could mean for your organization.
