No 994: Strategic Approaches of CO2 Emissions: The Cases of the Cement Industry and Chemical Industry

Diane-Laure Arjaliès (), 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.
