    Student thesis: Bachelor


    The environment has been given extra focus within organisations in recent years. In January 2005, the European Union introduced a system for emission permit trading.

    The purpose of our dissertation was to explain Swedish firms’ experience of emission permit trading system. We wanted to give a new perspective on this issue and explain the implications of firms that are subjected to a new means of control of pollution. Furthermore, our hope was to give suggestions for improvement of the emission permit trading system founded on the firms’ experiences.

    This research was conducted amongst the Swedish firms that had received the largest amount of emission permits in 2007. Five firms participated in the interviews.

    As a result of our research we have reach an understanding of the participating firms’ experiences of the emission permit trading system and from these opinions have been able to suggest possible changes of the system.
