Conference Paper


Gerpisa Colloquium, Paris (2011)


Research program objectives defined in 2007
• Such a program has to describe and to analyse (conceptualize) :
– How the three main dimensions interact • Environmental preservation pressures (tighter emissions’ standards, requirement for ‘recyclables’...)
• Corporate Social Responsibility requirements (Road safety, employment relationship, ability of car manufacturers to cope with the upstream and downstream consequences of their decisions...)
• Competitiveness of the industries and of their different components – In different geographical areas – At different levels within the value chain
– How are these interactions balanced in terms of: • Synergies (= positive interactions between different dimensions) • Trade-offs (= negative interactions between different dimensions)
