The importance of ISO 14001 as a management tool, market entry credential, or public and regulatory relations vehicle is different depending on your company, industry, regulatory jurisdiction and geo-economic location. Reasons to pursue certification include enhanced efficiency, cost savings, improved regulatory compliance, and better relationships with government agencies, community groups, and investors.
