Title Corporate environmental strategies towards sustainable development
Author Westerberg, Karin ; Mårtensson, Kjell
Date 2016
English abstract
Many companies have adopted some form of environmental programme to manage their relationship with nature. However, a company’s environmental achievements tend to be disconnected from its general operations; consequently, these achievements are ineffective. The purpose of this article is to employ a conceptual approach to explore ways to compose effective corporate environmental strategies. From a resource perspective, the flow of material, knowledge and experiences, relationships, communication, and cooperation and control are discussed as strategy aspects central to an effective environmental strategy. Using these five strategy aspects we show how three different strategies with different contents and directions can be assembled.
Swedish abstract
Många företag arbetar utifrån någon form av miljöstrategi för att hantera sina relationer till naturen. I många fall är dock dessa miljöstrategier frånkopplade från företagets övriga strategiska arbete vilket leder till att det miljöstrategiska arbetet inte blir effektivt. Artikelns syfte är att utforska olika sätt på vilka effektiva miljöstrategier kan utvecklas inom företag. Utifrån ett resursperspektiv, lyfter vi fram materialflöde, kunskap och erfarenhet, relationer, kommunikation och kontroll som viktiga aspekter i en effektiv miljöstrategi. Med hjälp av dessa fem aspekter visar vi hur tre olika miljöstrategier, med olika innehåll och riktningar, kan utvecklas.
