Abstract:Background and Purpose: Providing a win-win situation for enterprises and the environment is raising the importance of eco-innovation. This article sheds light on the eco-innovation activities implemented within the clusters of the South Eastern European region (hereafter the SEE region). The main objective of this paper is to provide an outline of the situation pertaining to the implementation of eco-innovation activities in analyzed clusters. Methodology: Empirical evidence is provided through the performance of survey research with a sample of 52 clusters, encompassing 11 countries of the SEE region. The basic research method used in this research was a questionnaire developed for cluster organizations, with which we gathered the data and afterwards conducted descriptive statistics. Results: The findings demonstrate that the majority of analyzed clusters implement eco-innovation activities. The results indicate that 40 clusters out of 52 in all have set objectives with regard to eco-innovation support in their national or regional programs, followed by 35 clusters, which include objectives related to eco-innovation in their cluster strategies, and lastly, only 15 clusters are primarily focused on eco-innovation. Hence, our study depicting the current situation regarding the implementation of eco-innovation activities in analyzed clusters and clusters% orientation towards eco-innovation leads to us the discussion of why such differences in clusters occur. Conclusion: The huge differences related to the implementation of eco-innovation activities in clusters of the SEE region, can also reflect the level of the national/regional development in terms of economic indicators such as GDP and, at the same time, offer room for a lot of improvement, and an exchange of best practice.

Title:Oris dejavnosti vezanih na eko inovacije
Abstract:Namen: Eko inovacije zagotavljajo tako imenovano win-win situacijo, ko zmagata obe strani % v tem primeru podjetje in okolje. S tem si eko inovacije dodatno zvišujejo svoj pomen. Namen tega članka je prikazati/zagotoviti oris stanja dejavnosti vezanih na eko inovacije, na primeru podjetniških grozdov v regiji Jugovzhodne Evrope. Metodologija: V članku so prikazani rezultati raziskave izvedene na vzorcu podjetniških grozdov, v 11 državah Jugovzhodne Evrope. Za pripravo pričujoče analize je bil pripravljen vprašalnik sestavljen iz osnovnih vprašanj, povezanih s posameznimi skupinami, s kombinacijo odprtih in zaprtih vprašnj. Cilj vprašalnika je bil pridobiti pregled nad podjetniškimi grozdi in dejavnostmi vezanimi na eko inovacije. Analiza podatkov je bila opravljena s preprostimi opisnimi statistikami. Ugotovitve: Ugotovitve kažejo, da večina analiziranih podjetniških grozdov izvaja dejavnosti vezane na eko inovacije. Nadalje, rezultati kažejo, da je 40 podjetniških grozdov (od skupno 52) postavilo cilje vezane na podporo eko inovacijam v nacionalnih ali regionalnih programih. Tem sledi 35 podjetniških grozdov, kateri vključujejo cilje vezane na eko inovacije v svoji strategiji. Medtem ko je le 15 podjetniških grozdov primarno osredotočenih na eko inovacije. Obstoječe razlike v dejavnostih vezanih na eko inovacije nas skozi članek vodijo do diskusije zakaj se le te pojavljajo. Originalnost: Če povzamemo vse ugotovitve pričujoče analize je potrebno najprej poudariti velike razlike v obravnavanih državah glede dejavnosti vezanih na eko inovacije. Te razlike so lahko tudi odraz nacionalnega/regionalnega razvoja, v smislu gospodarskih kazalcev, kot je BDP. Istočasno pa nudijo mnogo priložnosti za izboljšanje in izmenjavo dobrih praks.
