Hide details for SummarySummary
This is one of a number of company case studies designed to examine Michael Porter’s hypothesis that innovative companies responding to environmental regulation can create competitive advantage through lower costs or higher sales. In 1993, the authors conducted studies of six global industries (see items in chart below marked with *) to understand how environmental regulation was influencing competition.
In 1994 and 1995 they conducted five additional industry studies, as well as three individual company studies. These studies complemented five earlier company studies looking at the competitive opportunities of ‘beyond compliance’ investments. Finally, in 1996 they conducted financial assessments of two industries and an additional company to look at the financial and stock market impact of environmental performance. All this work has focused more or less on the relationship between business performance and environmental stewardship.
