Institutionalization of Environmental Innovation: Understanding co-evolutionary processes of European emission standards and technological innovation in the European heavy vehicles sector
2012 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
With growing global trades and commercial logistics, the environmental impact from transportation has become one of the most challenging issues for the policy makers. Meanwhile, the heavy vehicle sector holds a considerable share of transportation of goods and delivering basic needs of civilians in the modern life. While the automotive industry as a whole is the largest private actor by the share of R&D investment in Europe, the heavy vehicle sector (including buses, trucks, construction and commercial vehicles) corresponds to the largest share of economic activities in this region. Today, commercial road logistics is responsible for the majority of transportation which accounts for 75% of the total volume and 90% of the total value of goods transported within Europe (IRU, 2008).
