ECO-INNOVATION PARKS FOR A GREEN DEVELOPMENT IN SMALL AND MEDIUM SIZED ENTERPRISES

Written by Dumitru Florin FRONE, Simona FRONE

An important issue to be tackled is that the Romanian Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are less likely to adopt measures to improve their resource efficiency in comparison to the EU average and have a low propensity to collaborate for a systemic transformation agenda such as the circular and green economy. The main research objective of this paper is to stress eventually the strategic role of eco-innovation in developing eco-industrial parks as a community of manufacturing and service enterprises seeking enhanced environmental and economic performance through collaboration in managing environmental and resource issues including energy, water, and materials. The methodological approach will be based mostly on some own recently published theoretical and empirical research findings, referring to a case-study as well. The main results and conclusions outline the urge to identify, design and plan the possibilities of industrial symbiosis between several enterprises within an ecoindustrial park as a way for promoting green development in the SME-s as well as at the local, regional and macroeconomic scale.
