4. IMPACT ANALYSIS; 4.2. Assessment of impacts: Qualitative analysis: IAB: “The well-structured and clearly written report is based on three types of analysis: qualitative survey, quantitative assessment and case studies. Whereas some issues should be given more quantification effort (see below), the overall approach to data collection is appropriate.”Very thorough, mostly qualitative analysis of environmental, economic and (to a lesser extent) social impacts. Much of this draws on “a large-scale evaluation study on EMAS and Eco-label” (the “EVER study”), which examined how European companies perceive the motives, success factors and benefits in relation to EMAS.
