For a better day : A study on the environmental motives of Swedish micro, small- and medium-sized fashion companies

Norling, Elias, Karlsson, Tobias January 2021 (has links)
Background: The fashion industry has been extensively regarded as one of the most environmentally harmful industries. There is an increasing market for fast fashion and short lifespan, resulting in the fact that environmental impact is a growing concern. Micro, small- and medium-sized enterprises currently stand for 70% of the global pollution. Further, in Sweden, this category is not as regulated as large companies regarding environmental sustainability activities.  Problem: With the fashion industry being a major factor for global environmental impact, discussions regarding the sector have emerged. Attention on companies’ environmental sustainability has increased in past years and more companies have adopted new operations. Although studies regarding motives have been done in other countries, generalization cannot be made across different nationalities, sizes and sectors. Purpose: The purpose of the study is to investigate the influence of motives to adopt environmental sustainability within micro, small- and medium-sized businesses in the Swedish fashion industry. It aims at using previously found theories and findings to explore and create an overview of company motivations.  Method: This research was performed by a qualitative research design and 6 semi-structured interviews were conducted.  Results: The findings present the influence of several different motives. Among those were ethics and societal pressure more common than financial performance, competitiveness and brand image. There are different motives to engage in environmental operations. The ones found and presented in the theoretical summary all seemed to have a significance to some degree to the various interviewed companies.

No. of bitstreams: 1 ADRIANO MAGNO DIAS FONSECA.pdf: 4323672 bytes, checksum: baff4285d95183db618134eefe99f818 (MD5) Previous issue date: 2009-12-02 / Transformations of the XXI century forced governments and entrepreneurs to make revisions and reconfigurations of institutions and agency of service, changing the concepts of individuals and the companies themselves, for the administration and business management. Accordingly, this work aimed to propose the implementation of an Integrated System of Management for the Industry of Ingredient Pharmaceutical Active, certificate with Good Manufacturing Practice, centralized on quality management systems, environment, social responsibility and health and safety at work, using the standards as guidelines NBR ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001:2004 NBR, NBR 16001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007. The work included a literature review of standards and systems of administrations mentioned uses and experiences, practices with the standards applied to industry. The combination of these items revealed the similarities between the rules, and also to develop a framework for the implementation of GIS in sequential steps with the integration of all standards. It was concluded at the end of work on the feasibility of implementing the GIS in Petrochemicals Pharmaceutical Industries and the interrelationship between the standards studied. / As transformações do século XXI obrigaram governantes e empresários a fazerem revisões e reconfigurações das instituições e dos órgãos prestadores de serviços, alterando os conceitos dos indivíduos e das próprias empresas, em relação à administração e a gestão empresarial. Nesse sentido, este trabalho teve por objetivo propor a implementação de um Sistema Integrado de Gestão (SIG) para a Indústria de Insumo Farmacêutico, certificada com as Boas Práticas de Fabricação (BPF), focado nos sistemas de gestões da qualidade, meio ambiente, responsabilidade social e da segurança e saúde no trabalho, usando como diretrizes as normas NBR ISO 9001:2000, NBR ISO 14001:2004, NBR 16001:2004 e OHSAS 18001:2007. O trabalho consistiu no levantamento bibliográfico das normas e dos sistemas de gestões mencionados e o uso e experiências práticas com as normas aplicadas à indústria. A junção desses itens permitiu constatar a similaridades existentes entre as normas, e também a elaboração de uma estrutura para a implantação do SIG, em etapas seqüenciais com integração de todas as normas. Concluiu-se ao final do trabalho a viabilidade da implementação do SIG em Indústrias de Insumos Farmacêuticos e na inter relação entre as normas estudadas.
