Article Abstract

Federal agencies must implement the Code of Environmental Management Principles or an environmental management system like ISO 14001. In considering which option to pursue, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is implementing a five-part project. This includes gap analysis at 14 sites; validation of gap analysis data; benchmark studies of federal and private facilities; cost analyses by environmental economists and management system experts; and business case development, supported by oral presentations to the NASA Environmental Management Board.
