Organizations of all kinds are increasingly forced to develop an environmental conflict strategy. Otherwise, in the case of environmental conflicts an organization may become subject to the rule "if you don’t manage issues, issues will manage you" (Health and Nelson, 1986). Organizations in this context may be a companies, corporations, firms, enterprises, authorities, or institutions, or part or combination thereof, whether incorporated or not, public or private, that have their own functions and administrations (ISO 14001, 1996). Environmental management is an integral part of an organization’s overall management. With the regard to the implementation of an environmental management system, according to the ISO standard 14001, organizations should establish and maintain procedures for internal and external communications. Environmental reporting is an essential contribution towards the proactive communication of an organization with their stakeholders.
