Abstract

The development of the international environmental management standards (ISO 14000 series) offers a unique challenge for public managers to promote self-regulation worldwide to improve environmental performance of private and public entities. For policy-makers at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the ISO 14000 series could help save enforcement costs, ensure continual improvement of environmental performance, and generate new regulatory reform ideas. In general, the extent to which these benefits could be materialized depends largely on how EPA goes about adopting a holistic approach to protecting the environment. Some specific measures for capitalizing on these benefits include the establishment of a link between ISO 14000 certification and environmental performance, development of guidelines for possible regulatory relief, and preferable procurement policy.
