This project examines the incentives and constraints faced by micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in adopting environmentally sustainable businesses practices. A mail survey was distributed to a sample of owners and managers of small businesses in the greater Williamsburg, Virginia community to directly assess their opinions about issues of sustainability and the relationship between their businesses and the environment. The author concludes that SMEs differ fundamentally from larger businesses in their ability to meet or exceed environmental regulatory compliance and recommends a general policy approach to address these differences and encourage environmental management (EM) among SMEs.
