Management of the natural environment is becoming an increasingly important issue to manufacturing firms, yet their managers are also challenged to implement changes that improve competitiveness. To meet this challenge, a new construct grounded in the resource-based view of the firm and manufacturing strategy has been developed: the environmental technology portfolio. The composition of a plant's portfolio--the pattern of its investment in environmental technologies in manufacturing over time--was found to significantly affect both manufacturing and environmental performance for a sample of manufacturing plants.
