Abstract

The paper aims to outline some of the pollution control tools and the advantages and limits of using them as strategic options within the management of the organizations. We provide a short literature review on the pollution control tools evolution and we emphasize the fact that there were three important stages that marked this evolution. Also, we propose a short classification of the pollution control tools identifying the most important criteria of sorting them. Afterwards, we provide an non-exhaustive analysis of both the advantages and limits of these elements, which is fundamental in the process of capitalization of the pollution control tools within the management of the organizations, through amplifying their strategic dimension. Therefore, the knowledge of the strengths and of the weaknesses of each pollution control tool represents a mandatory decisional input for the top management of the organizations, in their strategy foundation within the environmental protection.
