Sustainability Performance Indicators for Industrial Enterprise Management
Jurgis K. Stanikis,Valdas Arba?iauskas
Environmental Research, Engineering and Management , 2009, DOI: 10.5755/j01.erem.48.2.13
Abstract: Sustainable development is increasingly considered to be a driving strategy for development. Despite the fact that sustainability performance evaluation receives broad attention from international organizations, industrial enterprises and researchers, a lot of unanswered questions remain in this area. It is commonly agreed that the use of performance indicators is a most effective way to evaluate sustainability performance, but design/ selection of sustainability performance indicators and their application wait to be explored at both national and enterprise levels until the consensus concerning the most effective performance indicator systems and methodologies for their application is achieved. This article (i) provides an overview of different sustainability performance evaluation systems with identification of their strengths and weaknesses in respect of improved management effectiveness at an enterprise level; (ii) presents recommendations for development/ selection of sustainability performance indicators that would make it possible to increase effectiveness of decision-making and to promote application of preventive measures, and (iii) provides recommendations how the process of sustainability performance evaluation could be carried out by industrial enterprises in practice.
Sustainable Innovation Implementation in the Baltic Sea Region SMEs: Barriers and Incentives
Laura Vasilenko,Valdas Arba?iauskas,Jurgis K. Stanikis
Environmental Research, Engineering and Management , 2011, DOI: 10.5755/j01.erem.57.3.393
Abstract: Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) play a major role in the economic growth and provide most of new jobs. At the same time SMEs pose serious environmental problems due to their large numbers and their cumulative effect. In this context, extensive application of sustainable innovations in SMEs becomes a priority task. This paper presents results of the analysis of SMEs innovativeness in the Baltic Sea Region, main barriers and incentives for development and implementation of sustainable innovations. Results of the Lithuanian and other national research studies in the Baltic Sea Region Countries conducted in the framework of the international project "Sustainable Production through Innovation in Small and Medium Sized Enterprises" (SPIN) (implemented in the framework of the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013) have been used as a main source of information in writing the paper.

Life Cycle Based Design and Product Development: Application of LCA to Lithuanian Industry
Jurgis Kazimieras STANIKIS,Visvaldas VAR?INSKAS
Environmental Research, Engineering and Management , 2011,
Abstract: Pagrindinis straipsnyje apra yto tyrimo tikslas - pateikti būvio ciklo vertinimo (BC ) princip kaip vien i gamini kūrimo proceso komponent . Tyrimas atliktas dviem etapais: pirmajame etape BC priemon s taikomos pasirinkt skirting pramon s ak gamini grup ms, antrajame etape BC rezultatai naudojami gaminio aplinkosaugin ms savyb ms tobulinti, gaminio ekologinio projektavimo priemon ms taikyti arba gamini aplinkosaugin ms deklaracijoms (GAD) rengti. Straipsnyje pateikti pavyzd iai rodo, kad mon ms projektas buvo naudingas skatinant ini sklaid ir atv r galimybes diegti aplinkosaugines inovacijas praktikoje. Straipsnyje apra ytas naujas būvio ciklo vertinimo modelis gali būti taikomas daugelyje pramon s moni . The paper is based on some of the results of the project "Implementation of Green Product Development in the Baltic Sea Region and Establishment of Green Company Clusters in Latvia, Lithuania and Russia with Strong Links to Sweden". Life cycle assessment (LCA), as a tool for environmental evaluation of the product system has never been used before in Lithuanian industry. The main goal of this study has been to make an attempt of introducing LCA to the product development process. In the first phase LCA is applied to a selected group of products in different industry sectors. In the second phase the LCA results are used for readjusting the product, its eco-design or its environmental performance declaration development. Despite the limited capacity and lack of incentives, the companies have been satisfied with the project results in terms of the acquired knowledge, particularly in respect to the opportunities for cleaner production innovations. The paper presents a new calculation model used in LCA research, a LCA model of an environmental impact of electricity production in Lithuanian national electricity grid and discusses the experience gained in successful implementation of LCA tools in Lithuanian industry
