This report offers a conceptual framework and empirical guidelines for understanding the relationship between environmental regulation and innovation. The basic aim is to widen the concepts of innovation which are used in environment-oriented studies, while at the same time challenging the idea that regulation is either a straightforward promoter or inhibitor of innovation. The authors use a 'systems' approach, one which emphasises the collective and interactive character of innovation, as an appropriate entry point for analysing the complex institutional, social and networking aspects of the sources and impacts of regulation.
