PREFACE
The aims of the research project on the Enterprise and the Environment are:
to point to new regional/local cooperation initiatives and their potential in
improving corporate environmental performance, environmental quality, technical
innovation, technology transfer and the economic development, notably in the
southern Member States, and to identify the obstacles to such initiatives and the
measures required to overcome them;
to define the role of the various parties, including that of the social partners, in
the process;
to contribute to a better implementation of environmental legislation, particularly
Community directives and regulations, within the framework of development
efforts, and to increase environmental awareness at the regional/local level;
to contribute to the implementation of Community policies and actions aimed at
sustainable development.
The research was developed in most Member States of the EU and included the
examination of cooperation initiatives, at the local level, among firms, regulatory agencies,
technical experts and the social partners. It focused on initiatives making a valuable
contribution to the improvement of corporate environmental performance. Many of
these initiatives were presented and discussed in a Round Table organised in Rome, in
late 1992, on "Industry, Social Dialogue and Sustainability". A report on this Round
Table was published in early 1993 and in 1994 the greek case study was published on the
occasion of the greek presidency.
The present report includes the Irish case study highlighting the strengths and weaknesses
of the Cork Cleaner Production Centre.
The initiative has been judged promising and the model has already been transferred to
Greece.
