Kedves Kornyeszek:

Erdekes lenne tudni, a kulfoldi erdekeltsegu magyarorszagi vallalatok hol 
tartanak kornyezetvedelmi management rendszeruk honositasaban.  A GM pl. 
most adta ki masodik eves kornyezetvedelmi jelenteset ami az USA-ra, 
Kanadara es Mexikora vonatkozik.  Ugyanigy pl. a Shell, ESSO stb. nagyobb 
vallalatok mind produkalnak tobbe-kevesbe auditalt eves kornyezeti 
jelenteseket.  Kivancsi vagyok ezeknek a cegeknek a magyar leanyvallalatai 
hol tartanak ezeknek a jelenteseknek a magyarorszagi kiadasaval.

      ALLIANCES BETWEEN MAJOR CORPORATIONS AND ENVIRONMENTAL
GROUPS ARE GROWING

      /ADVANCE/ NEW YORK, Feb. 1 -/E-Wire/-- U.S. companies are
forming an increasing number of alliances with nonprofit
environmental research and advocacy groups, according to a new report
from The Conference Board's Townley Global Management Center for
Environment, Health and Safety.

     The report, based on the views of 100 senior environment, health
and safety executives and experts, says alliances are growing
because:

     -- More companies are reaching out to external shareholders, by
providing more information on their activities and by seeking their
input and cooperation.

     -- Several industry trade association programs, such as the
Chemical Manufacturers Association Responsible Care Principles, have
encouraged companies to explore such joint ventures.

     -- Environmental accountability is rapidly rising.

     The study also identifies three critical elements in building
successful environmental alliances: focusing goals so they result in
win-win outcomes; building trust; and finding a strategic fit and
establishing a framework for interaction with a partner.

     "In a win-win situation, each side of an environmental alliance
should gain value and be able to show its constituents specific
results or improvements," says Leticia Orti, research association at
The Conference Board's Townley Global Management Center for
Environment Health & Safety and author of the report.  "For
companies, these could mean improvements in the type of technical,
regulatory, policy, resource management, or marketing information
received."

     The process of building trust can involve spending a period of
time exchanging information and ideas with a potential partner or
group of interest to the company.  If the two sides already have some
familiarity with each other, trust can be fostered while the
collaboration is being negotiated.

     The finding of a strategic fit is closely related to focusing on
win-win situations and building trust.  It is a critical educational
process that often requires significant research, the Conference
Board reports.  The World Business Council for Sustainable
Development's "Contact Plan" stresses the need for preliminary
preparation before undertaking an alliance with an environmental
group.

A mai Nepszabadsagban olvastam egy kozgazdasztol egy zold adoreform
tervrol. Elegge csak az altalanossag szintjen maradt, igy nem nagyon
itelheto meg a realitasa. Diana mar irt valami hasonlorol, hatha o tud
valaszolni a kerdeseimre.  Az en fo problemam, hogy megvalosithato-e egy
ilyen terv egy kis, vilaggazdasagtol erossen fuggo orszagban. Egy ilyen
adoreform termeszetes modon megvaltoztatja, helyenkent drasztikusan az
araranyokat. (Ha a valtozasok nem drasztikusak, akkor eredmeny sem nagyon
varhato.) Ami szerintem azt jelenti, hogy a kornyezetszennyezo termeles
nem valtodik fel zoldebbel, hanem egyszeruen a hatarainkon tulra huzodik
es a kesz termeken keresztul jon be az aru. Ami teljes iparagak
megszunesehez vezethetne. Ha nem letezne export-import, akkor persze
megjelenne a valamivel dragabb, de kornyezetvedobb termeles, de igy ez nem
jelenik meg (hiszen nincs adobevetel, amibol a kornyezetvedobb termelest
szubvencionalni lehetne.), hanem csak a termek jon at a hataron. Ami
szerintem a munkanelkuliseg tovabbi emelkedesehez vezetne, hisz nem latom,
hogy milyen uj iparagak vennek at az igy felszabadulo munkaerot. A benzin
aremeles persze rendben van, annak nincs ekkora drasztikus hatasa.
Ellenben egy drasztikus CO2 ado (amit elvben tamogatnek) bizonyara
eltuntetne pl. az aluminium ipart.  Igy velemenyem szerint nem emelhetjuk
a kornyezetszennyezes adojat magasabbra, mint a nyugati allamokban. Nem az
EU konformitas miatt, hanem a versenykepesseg fenntartasa miatt.  Tehat
Dianna, letezik egy reszletekben kidolgozott zold adoreform
Magyarorszagon, vagy csak nehanyan egy tea mellett megvaltjak a
Magyarorszagot? A cikk alapjan en az utobbiban hiszek.  Udv Gyuri

People interested in energy issues in Central and Eastern Europe and with 
access to the World Wide Web - this is for you:

http://weber.u.washington.edu/~jhauff

is the address of what I called "THE ENERGY PAGE FOR CENTRAL AND EASTERN 
EUROPE". I collected links to international/national organizations and 
institutes which are active in the field. Each link has a describtion on
what kind of information is to be found there, and how valuable it might 
be.
 
Everybody is welcome and asked to send propositions and hints about other 
sources of information on energy in CEE to my address!

Check it out.
