The relationships between competitiveness, environmental performance and management of small and medium sized European manufacturing firms

In this project, factors were determined that promote or hinder the ecological initiatives of small and medium-sized companies, and political recommendations were made relating to the promotion of economically and ecologically effective initiatives. To this end, technical iniatives (e.g. integrated production technologies) and organisational initiatives (e.g. ecodesign, environmental management) were examined in approx. 300 companies in Germany, Ireland, Great Britain and Italy.
