Analysis of Environmental Firms

The EIU has compiled a cross-sectoral database of firms that are pursuing innovations within the environmental domain. This investigation analyses a subset of this database in an attempt to provide insight into some of the common challenges faced by firms within particular sectors. The importance of new ventures in the generation of diversity and the speciation of technological innovations is well recognised and as such this investigation focuses on small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Such enterprises have fewer resources than established organisations and this investigation also sets out to explore whether these commercialisation challenges are predominated by factors internal or external to the firm.
