Project ID: 44513
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

Eco-innovation becomes of increasing importance since the markets of the future are expected to have a strong ecological dimension. However, information regarding its inputs and outputs is yet poor.

The MEI project focused on the measurement aspects of eco-innovation in order to enhance understanding and propose methods for increased implementation of sustainable cutting-edge approaches.

This final activity report justifies the necessity for MEI elaboration and presents the developed typology and companies’ classification. The evaluation of alternative measurement methods is analysed and the attempt to identify suitable indicators is highlighted. Moreover, the document contains information on eco-innovation competitiveness and provides suggestions regarding alternative methods’ implementation and future research needs.
