Online ISO 14001 Survey for Small Businesses Now Available

Published: Monday, February 21, 2005 - 23:00

The International Organization for Standardization recently launched an online survey to examine the value of ISO 14001 to small and medium-sized businesses. ISO encourages all sm all- to medium-sized businesses to participate, whether or not they have implemented ISO 14001 or another environmental management system. The survey can be completed in five to 10 minutes and will be available until March 8. A report on the results will be available online after May 1. All participants who complete the survey will have access to the data to conduct their own analyses.

“Sm all- and medium-sized enterprises are by far the most numerous in most economies and this vital to economic wealth and to environmental health,” says Alan Bryden, ISO secretary-general. “Therefore, it’s important to facilitate their use of environmental management systems.”
