  • Measuring the impact of voluntary environmental protection instruments: perceptual vs. archival techniques

    The use of voluntary environmental protection instruments is expanding significantly around the world. Although there is a large literature dealing with what drives companies to adopt voluntary instruments, there has been relatively little research on the impact that some of these tools have on the actual environmental performance of companies. The existing literature in this area presents ...

  • Urban hygiene and transport: a functional approach to the study of the system with the instruments of economic logistics

    This research work was inspired by observing the permanent waste emergency conditions of the Campania Region. The study also clearly shows the need for a global assessment of the costs and benefits created by the management of a service, such as urban hygiene, which is still a public service. This kind of approach is essential when wants to assess the possibility of using modes of transport other ...

  • IT sourcing: a research framework

    It is only during the past few years that the sourcing of IT has become an important issue for most organisations. Downsizing, the move to flatten organisations and the search for added flexibility, are cited as major reasons for this interest. Additionally, for the UK public sector, government pressure and legislative requirements have been instrumental in making many organisations consider ...

  • GAW Regional Station for Atmospheric Research

    The aim of the JRC-Ispra station is to monitor the concentration of pollutants in the gas phase, the particulate phase and precipitations, as well as aerosol optical parameters, which can be used for assessing the impact of European policies on air pollution and climate change. It is particularly well suited for the participation in international monitoring programs like the Co-operative program ...


  • Developing and evaluating new policy instruments for sustainable waste management

    The aim of this paper is to suggest a number of interesting policy instruments that can make the Swedish waste management system more sustainable. Approximately 60 suggestions for policy instruments were gathered through a number of workshops with stakeholders. These were further prioritised in a workshop with stakeholders and by the research team resulting in a list of 15 instruments: ...

  • Environmental Management System (EMS) Certification and its Impacts on Firms´Performance in Malaysia

    ABSTRACT This research will study the impact of ISO 14001 certification on firms’ performance in Malaysia such as economic, environmental and customer satisfaction. Although the ISO 14001 standard on environmental management systems was introduced in 1996, to date there has been very few empirical studies examining the impact of the standard on corporate performance. Our study addressed this ...


  • The reverse logistics as an environmental tool integrated to environmental management system for an effective management of solid industrial waste

    This work is a study that delimited areas such as environmental management and reverse logistics. It aims at demonstrating the possibility of integrating these processes within organisational environment, to prove that ran this way, they turn the management of industrial generated solid waste more effective and it will mitigate the negative impacts resulting from production activities to the ...

  • Staying Safe with Environmental Monitoring

    Geotechnical Instrumentation involves administering the earth and environment and it is hence that designers have made different frameworks to make the occupation simpler. These frameworks grab thousands upon much information that it orders and illuminates so they can concoct evidence. The places where it is necessary are the pollution chance appraisal, trends in time and space; anticipatory ...

  • Orientation to the application of economic instruments in industrial solid waste management – a case study in Ho Chi Minh City

    Based on world experience of applying economic instruments ( EIs ) in solid waste management ( SWM ), by consensus and desk review methods, the research had identified corresponding weights of 09 criteria for selection of EIs in SWM and priority orders. Accordingly, a feasible EIs system was proposed in Ho Chi Minh ...

  • Beliefs, Politics, and Environmental Policy

    Introduction Many of us who work on environmental issues have faced the challenge of conveying their importance to nonspecialists. Perhaps we have found ourselves defending the robustness of climate science to a contrarian uncle, or extolling the importance of biodiversity to a dubious aunt. Our relations and friends are often educated people, skilled in their own professions, who have ...

  • Stevens Hydra Probe Furthers Scientific Research at Alabama A&M

    For more than a decade now, the Stevens Hydra Probe has been an important data collection instrument used in The Soil Climate Analyses Network (SCAN). The SCAN Program helps scientists study soil moisture and temperature variability at different time scales and under different land uses and land covers. Studies that involve the SCAN program benefit the environmental science community as well as ...

  • Advanced gas detection technology supports arctic greenhouse gas research

    Enormous quantities of greenhouse gases (GHG) exist within Arctic ice and frozen soils, so with the threat of global warming, a clear understanding of the relationship between GHG in the atmosphere and in the ice/soil is vital because melting of permafrost could cause a dangerous climate tipping point. There can be few more challenging environments for monitoring gases, but PhD researcher Martin ...
