Abstract

Entre los problemas medioambientales actuales, la reducción o eliminación de los residuos se ha convertido en una de las principales preocupaciones en los países industrializados y en una prioridad para las empresas. En el presente trabajo se realiza una revisión de los postulados del modelo económico clásico, vigente hasta hace escasas fechas, en relación con la variable medio ambiente y los residuos generados por las empresas. Asimismo, se revisa la literatura existente en torno a la potencialidad de la gestión de residuos y las posibles alternativas para la obtención de ventajas derivadas de un tratamiento eficiente de los mismos. El estudio se completa con el análisis empírico de la gestión de residuos en empresas de la Comunidad Autónoma del País Vasco. Así, se analizan las motivaciones que impulsan a las empresas a implementar un sistema de gestión de residuos y las ventajas o beneficios que de ello se derivan, entre otros factores. / Nowadays the reduction or elimination of waste has become a major environmental concern among industrialized countries and a priority for companies. In this work it is carried out a review of the postulates of the classical economic model, existing until a few dates, in connection with the variable environment and waste generated by firms. It is also examined the literature about the potential of the waste management and possible alternatives for obtaining of advantages or benefits derived from an efficient treatment of waste. This paper is completed with an empirical analysis of the waste management in companies of the Basque Autonomous Community. The motivations that drive firms to implement a waste management system and the advantages or benefits which derive from this fact are analyzed among other factors.
