Aus der Einleitung:

Over the past decade or so, the advent of systems thinking and the implementation of environmental management systems (EMS's) has changed the face of corporate environmental management. Beginning with the promulgation of the ISO 14001 standard in 1996, EMS's have become an increasingly accepted framework for managing the environmental aspects of an organization's activities, products and services. Indeed, both the term "environmental aspects" and the phrase "activities, products and services" were popularized through the development of ISO 14001 standard. The discussion below will emphasize how ecosystem services can be infused into corporate environmental management by rethinking an organization’s environmental aspects across the range of its activities, products and services.
