Presented paper discusses influence of implemented quality and environmental management systems ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 on enterprise sustainability (CSR) priorities. The paper brings original results and comments on realized and processed questionnaire research concerning approx. 700 companies operating through the Czech and Slovak Republic, called “Adaptability of entrepreneurship”, financed by Silesian University in Opava. The paper evaluates difference in enterprise top management sustainability priorities awareness as an effect of implementation of ISO QMSs. The performance of four groups of companies (non ISO implemented, ISO 9000 implemented, ISO 14000 implemented and both ISO 9000 and 14000 implemented) is compared. There were selected seven criteria for evaluation, which can be marked as enterprise sustainability priorities plus three criteria to categorize enterprises. Four hypotheses were tested. The results
show visible improvement in awareness of selected priorities at companies with implemented ISO QMS. Problematic and results are discussed and compared with professional literature.
