La relation entre innovation environnementale et réglementation : une application au secteur agroalimentaire français

Abstract : The Agro-food industry is recognised as a major source of pollution. Porter and van der Linde argue in their well known Hypothesis that there is a positive relationship between the level of regulation and the rate of environmental innovation produced by firms. Firms in the agro-food sector should thus develop a great number of such innovations. To explore this question, we use data collected in the Community Innovation Survey (CIS 8) on innovation by firms in the agro-food sector. Our analysis involves a multiple correspondence analysis and a hierarchical analysis. Our results suggest that Porter’s hypothesis is not supported in the agro-food sector, as even confronted to the same regulation, only a small number of firms innovate. Our results suggest also that firms can implement an autonomous innovation strategy based on intangible innovation (e.g. organizational innovation and marketing innovation). An additional result of our study is that small firms seem to innovate as much as their bigger counterparts and would rather use intangible innovation, but medium firms seem less innovative.
