Research output: Contribution in Book/Catalog/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Strategically integrating energy efficiency requirements into a technological product innovation involves taking into account several key dimensions that go beyond the development of the green technology itself. Based on a preliminary conceptual model, this theoretical paper aims at improving our understanding of the dynamics taking place when such a socio-technical system transits towards environmental sustainability. It assesses both the micro-level processes involved in constructing green technologies and the macro and meso-level patterns endogenous and exogenous to the firm, shaping the development and diffusion of those sustainable technologies inside the organization.
