In 1984, BAUM ("Tree") - the German Environmental Management Association - was founded by Mr. Winter, a German entrepreneur. This integrated system of environmental management was the first and only systematic attempt to provide businesses with practical checklists on environmentally sound behaviour from production to marketing and transportation to training. Since its founding, BAUM's membership has grown from 10 to 250 companies. In 1991 organisations will join to create the first international, independent, industry network devoted to helping business cope with environmental issues.
