Some US Firms Already Meeting Euro-Standards

| Thursday May 19th, 2005 | 0 Comments

eu_flag.jpgDespite a comparatively lax governmental stance here in the US, may firms are already gearing up to comply with tougher environmental standards – those of Europe. (reported in today’s LA Times) The principal reason, obviously, is that if a US company wants to sell products in the EU, they’ll have to prove compliance. But it’s also sign that US companies are becomming increasingly proactive about governmental regulation, as it’s likely that regulations will eventually be tougher at home. Companies that make changes early are likely to have a competitive advantage over those that don’t.
