Greening of industry

These 48 company case studies are examples of good practice in the anticipation and management of green change in 10 sectors.

Analysis focuses on how to strengthen competitiveness and increase both the quantity and quality of jobs while protecting the environment. Collaborative approaches involving the social partners, public authorities, education and training providers, non-government organisations and other actors are of particular interest. It is hoped that these cases will provide useful insights and ideas to other companies in similar sectors.

Slovenské elektrárne a.s. (SE) is Slovakia’s biggest producer of electricity, and green business practice is significant in minimising the company’s negative impact on the environment.

These measures reduced the volume of the greenhouse gas CO2 produced in these plants. In 2010, photovoltaic power plants were also installed in Mochovce and Vojany.
