The Environmental issues have become critical concerns of business in recent years. The Singapore Environment Ministry is also urging organisations to consider adopting the recently launched ISO 14000 Environmental Management Standards. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the motivation factor or factors (metric independent variable) for Singapore organisations to or not to adopt (non-metric dependent variable) the newly launched ISO 14000 Environmental Management Standards (EMS) through the development of a predictive model. Other objectives such as examining the environmental awareness among the industries and the level of intention of adopting ISO 14000 EMS are also discussed.
