ABSTRACT

El objetivo de este artículo consiste en identificar algunos de los factores que determinan la estrategia medioambiental de las empresas, dedicando especial atención a los factores que presionan hacia la adaptación medioambiental y a las barreras que impiden dicha adaptación. La importancia de estos determinantes es valorada por un grupo de expertos en gestión medioambiental, quienes concluyen que la presión procede fundamentalmente de los clientes y la legislación, mientras que las barreras más importantes son el coste de dicha adaptación y la prioridad de otros asuntos.

    • "Second, another line of investigation identifies the role of public administrations and legislation for inducing environmental behaviours (Del Brío and Junquera, 2001; Del Brío et al., 2001; Murillo et al., 2004). Such legislation and environmental politics contribute to the increasing importance of the environment in company decisions (Angell and Klassen, 1999; Henriques and Sadorsky, 1999; Russo and Fouts, 1997; Vicente and Ruiz, 2002).

    ABSTRACT: In an environment characterized by a global, dynamic, and increasingly more competitive economy, wine businesses must identify advantages which enable them to achieve higher profits than their competitors. As such, the integration of an environmental variable in business strategy is being promoted as a potential source of competitive advantages. This investigation analyzes, from a multidisciplinary point of view, the potential effects of good environmental practices on strategic behaviors in the wine industry, as well as their ecological and economic results. A cooperative group in this industry provides the study context; the authors investigate how it confronts threats from its environment. The results show that managerial commitment has been the main promoter of good environmental practices, mostly those that are easy to apply, demand low economic costs, and allow for improvements in the productivity and quality of the products. This study also offers a series of implications to contribute to existing knowledge about success factors for environmental strategies, especially in the wine industry.

    • "imilar socio-political contexts, as well as within the same industry (Sharma and Vredenburg, 1998). Rivera and de Juan (2006) also found that the managerial perceptions of environmental stakeholders are based on their potential influence, which is moderated by both the organizational structure of the company and the personal values of the managers.Murillo et al. (2004)concluded that external stakeholders (in particular clients, environmental laws, and other competitors) are the most influential in terms of environmental pressure placed on a company."

    ABSTRACT: An increased level of environmental awareness by consumers has caused marketing to pay special attention to the deteriorating environment. This is a consequence of markets punishing those companies that fail to consider environmental concerns in their marketing efforts. However, how environmental proactivity is integrated into marketing strategy has been scarcely analyzed in the marketing literature. The present paper aims to fill this gap in the literature by theoretically analyzing the ways in which companies integrate environmental concerns into their marketing strategies. This theoretical analysis is complemented by an empirical investigation into 75 agrofood companies in Spain. We find that long-term marketing instruments should be given priority when companies integrate environmental issues into their marketing strategies.

    ABSTRACT: In an environment characterized by a global, dynamic and increasingly more competitive economy, businesses must identify advantages which enable them to achieve higher profits than their competitors. As such, the integration of an environmental variable in business strategy is being promoted as a potential source of competitive advantages. Most of the literature trying to explain this relationship has concentrated its focus on a single, purely theoretical aspect; thus, we propose the joint consideration of various aspects and theories that will enable us to offer a more understandable and enriching view of these behaviours. Therefore, the objective of our work is to analyse the integration of the environmental factor in managerial strategy using a three-point perspective: focusing on the resource-based theory of competitive advantage, on dynamic capabilities, and also on corporate social responsibility.
