Strategic Approaches of CO2 Emissions: The Cases of the Cement Industry and Chemical Industry
(), Cécile Goubet and Jean Pierre Ponssard
Abstract: The ability of firms to transform an environmental
constraint into a strategic opportunity has been a controversial issue in
the literature. Based on a comparative study of CO2 strategies in the
cement and chemical industries, the article shows that the capacity of
firms to be proactive regarding sustainable development is largely
constrained by the characteristics of the sector in terms of dependence on
natural resources, flexibility in the composition of activities portfolio
and structure of the downstream sector.
