LEGAL SOLUTIONS AND ECOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS IN ORGANIZATIONS

Agnieszka Leszczynska

Abstract


Ecological innovations can be implemented in an organization in a voluntary or forced manner. In the former case, organizations take a decision to modernize the technologies used on the basis of socio-economic premises. In the latter one – tightening legal regulations brings about a necessity of a change of the installations used. In such a situation, emission standards or technological standards are subject to change, which makes it necessary to for organizations to adjust to new demands, determined in legal regulations. In the article the relationships holding between ecological innovations and legal regulations pertaining to environmental protection was presented. The study results show that legal regulations do not affect ecological innovations to such an extent as it was originally assumed. In spite of the fact that these regulations provide a principal source of ecological innovations, their impact results mainly from the sanctionary character of legislation.
