Three Tools for Strategic Analysis of Environmental Markets

  • Ralph Meima


Environmentally oriented markets are arising and expanding, but traditional business information systems such as accounting can yield information of only very limited environmental relevance. All the same, discontinuous changes in corporate surroundings — so-called ‘trend-breaks’ — continue to appear in an unusually abrupt manner.

The organization of strategic environmental information is discussed in this chapter along with three useful analytical tools.
