Improving industry efficiency through environmental innovations
Date:9/11/2008

n used in the past. Analyses of technology databases used in EU policy-making reveal that this policy is unable to attain sufficient emissions reduction and that the so-called Best Available Technologies often encourage inefficient technologies of the past. Policies that embark on environmental innovations and adaptations reduce emissions down to levels that do not preclude sustainable environmental qualities. They do this at a cost that barely increases and may even bring about cost savings in many cases.

Krozer's book was presented to the Netherlands' Minister of Environmental Affairs, Mrs. Jacqueline Cramer. The Minister has said she agrees with the book's main conclusions. In her reaction, she concluded "You argue that environmental policy needs shocks. History has proved it. You also argue that taxation on pollution can lead to pollution reduction but this is not the driver of changes. History has shown it, as well. You can clean up as much as you wish. The persistent problems remain. You find that major uncertainties should be taken away. I support this view. My vision is systematic increase of the possibilities for sustainable development that embraces ecology, economy and the social-ethical values."

This book will interest researchers, managers, organisations and policy-makers on the national and regional level.
