I've been asked to write an article for a local monthly business journal about ISO 14000 and its relationship to banking and investment. Anybody got any clues? i've got to get this done quick.

I can only guess you will look at it from the aspect of lending and investing in companies with consideration to a company's certification. Lower risk factor than with unregistered companies from an environmental compliance stand point.

Randy - suggest approaching it from 2 points of view:
1. ISO14001 can give a lead (aka hint) for due diligence in takeover situations (banks often involved)
2. Management commitment to regulatory compliance (reputation), pollution prevention (heavy cost avoidance) & continual improvement (supply chain) that is required by ISO14001 can be significant to investors wanting confidence in riskier investments.

Randy - then I'd pick a theme of "managing risk" (bankers & lawyers love that stuff) & use due diligence as a bonus
