New green management certification standards edge forward

Countries have backed a move to publish a revised version of ISO 14001 as a draft international standard (DIS), paving the way for sustainable management best practices to play an even more central role in corporate decision making.

Over 80 percent of ISO members voted in favor of a second committee draft (CD2) of the revised environmental management systems standard, published in October, in a ballot process that ran up to January 23.

The next meeting of the international working group drafting the standard will be held from 25th February to 1st March and will see the group consider the comments submitted during the latest consultation. A final round of consultation with users will then be undertaken before the new standard is officially launched.
