Abstrakt

The natural environment is one of the important elements shaping the development of a business enterprise in the ever-changing reality. Each business entity which wants to become a pro-environmental enterprise has to implement properly the essence of the eco-development concept inside its organisation. Organisational culture and competitiveness constitute two significant functional areas of business enterprises. Exposed to the influence of eco-development, these areas adopt the shape of the eco-developmental organisational culture and eco-developmental competitiveness of business enterprises. Both these areas are complementary to each other and together create a coherent system.

The objective of the article is to present the essence and structure of an eco-developmental organisational culture in the eco-developmental competitiveness of business enterprises. It includes the following theses: (i) An eco-developmental organisational culture is shaped by both soft and hard factors;and (ii) The factors of an eco-developmental organisational culture (as a constituent of eco-developmental competitiveness) shape the eco-developmental cultural competitiveness of business enterprises.

The article is based on the results of the author’s empirical research (a survey of a sample of 200 Polish business enterprises in the Świętokrzyskie Province) preceded by a thorough study of the literature on the subject.

Słowa kluczowe: eco-developmental organisational culture, eco-developmental competitiveness, eco-developmental cultural competitiveness, Model of the Eco-developmental Cultural Competitiveness of Enterprises
