The project identified approaches to an environmental-friendly structural change in advanced industrialized countries. It focussed on the most environmentally active economy branches in selected industrialized countries. The research question were why, how and with which economic-social effects was pressure put on the environmentally intense material production, with the aim of reducing or substituting it. Environmentally intense industries are bound to create significant above-average environmental problems (waste disposal, transportation, risks), even though they may actively try to protect the environment. Apart from the ecological relief effects, employment policies improved and were seen as a successful tackling of this change.
