ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY ACTIVITIES OF DAIRY COMPANIES

 

 

ABSTRACT. The article presents the outcomes of survey research, aimed at defining environmentally-friendly activities of dairy companies based in the Wielkopolskie Province. The research was conducted 31 medium and big companies. It was aimed at defining the kind of environmentally-friendly activities undertaken by dairy companies, their determinants, limits and premises, as well as the amount of public aid they receive in this respect and the procedures of its granting. The conducted research shows that environmentally-friendly activities in dairy companies are mainly caused by external pressure resulting from legal regulations and a willingness to reduce environmental charges. The surveyed entities undertake environmental actions aimed mainly at economising on natural resources and reducing their negative impact on the environment, such as reducing emissions and waste. The most important impeding factors include financial and personal limitations.
