CORRELATION AND REPRESENTATIVENESS BETWEEN ECO-INNOVATION DIMENSIONS AND SUSTAINABILITY IN ELECTRIC POWER COMPANIES


ÁREA: 10. Sustainability

RESUMO:
The Eco-Innovation has been considered an important factor in developing of sustainable products and services around the world. The innovation when integrated to the sustainable actions certainly improves the companies? efficiency and representativeness into their markets. This joining has been perceived in Electric Power Companies, in which the environment and sustainable objectives are the main targets to be achieved in these companies. This work proposes a methodology that uses the Transversal Cut Data Lifting (TCSL) technique, which involves self-administered questionnaires applied to managers to identify the possibilities of correlation and representativeness between eco-innovation dimensions and sustainability. An application of this proposed methodology was performed with collected data from an electric power company in Brazil and the results pointed out that there was a significant positive relationship between top management support, technological competence and environmental formalization, with the definition of proactive eco-innovation strategies. With these results, it can be considered that this study contributed to the advancement of knowledge in this area, with the definition of the interfering variables. The practical implications are recognized by an empirically applied study, which provides information on eco-innovation management. It recognizes the managing effects, allowing for more in-depth analyses, which could be considered as a relevant gap in the literature.

PALAVRAS-CHAVE:
eco-innovation, sustainable development, innovation.
