Dear Colleagues,

'Greener Management International' Issue 30 is a special theme issue:

Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises and Environment-Oriented Networks and
Alliances
Edited by Teun Wolters, ISCOM Institute for Sustainable Commodities,
Utrecht, Netherlands

The problem of how to address the huge environmental impacts of small and
medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) continues to vex policy-makers around the
world. In this special issue of 'Greener Management International', the
contributors aim to define an area of policy research which may offer some
solutions: the use of business-oriented networks and alliances between a
variety of organisations which could both encourage and enable SMEs to
become more sustainable. Clear evidence is presented that network
involvement is a significant element in improved environmental performance
by SMEs, bridging the gap between awareness and action.
