General description:
The main objective of the conducted research is to carry out a multidimensional analysis of environmental efficiency of organizations and to define conditioning factors (stimulants and barriers). In the research, it has been assumed that environmental efficiency of organizations is a relative measure of the effects (results) of mitigating negative environmental impact of economic activity. On the other hand, the Environmental Coefficient, which will be developed within the project, is an absolute measure. The Environmental Coefficient results from six sub-effects achieved by the examined entity within the scope of: energy consumption, usage of materials, water consumption, waste production, biodiversity and pollution emission. The following research will be realized within the project:
- developing of the concept of measuring environmental efficiency including the Environmental Coefficient, environmental efficiency of organizations, structural efficiency, the environmental gap and environmental trajectory,
- analysis of environmental statements of organizations registered in the EMAS system and introducing the selected categories into a database,
- preparation of the concept of a survey and in-depth interviews,
- realization of the survey and in-depth interviews – identification of factors determining environmental efficiency of organizations,
- analysis of the survey and in-depth interviews’ results – identification of factors determining environmental efficiency of organizations,
- preparation of the database for statistical and econometric research – an introductory analysis of raw data from the survey and EMAS statements,
- calculation of the value of the Environmental Coefficient and its derivatives; the analysis of the sensitivity of the achieved results,
- introductory statistical analysis of the Environmental Coefficient along with the environmental efficiency measures and determining factors,
- econometric analysis – the estimation of the multiple regression models,
- synthesis of the survey results as well as the statistical and econometric analyses.
