Abstract

During the 1970's, under the coordination of the United Nations, studies were undertaken whose goals were the creation of strategies to preserve life on Earth. A set of norms were established, including the NBR ISO 14.000, in Brazil, to define the general steps to implement Management Environmental Systems. This paper is concerned with this subject. It aims to explore a set of topics concerned with these themes and to present a research that was made with 87 Brazilian companies that obtained the NBR ISO 14.001 certification, trying to verify possible benefits due to the implementation of the system.
