Established in 1978, it more or less neglected environmental concerns for a long time. In 1993 it found it could no longer hold this position. Both internal and external pressures made DRUK aware of the growing importance of the environment. Nowadays, DRUK is one of the leading companies in its sector when it comes to environmental management. Although one can argue whether DRUK is now completely ready to face the future, the speed and depth of the transformational process has put DRUK 'ahead of the curve'.
DRUK is a profitable company. For the past five years the profits have been growing each year. Their market share is fairly stable, with tough competition. That is why they strive for a lasting relationship with their customers by offering the highest quality and reliability. DRUK does not want to compete primarily on price. Nowadays DRUK employs some 50 people, which makes it one of the larger printing companies of the sector, working mainly in the production departments. Besides those departments there is a sales department.
141 Companies co-operated in our research. DRUK is one of these companies2 • The case of DRUK will show that even in a very competitive sector of industry a combination of internal motivation and external pressures and expertise can really help transform a company. In section 2, we give some basic facts about DRUK. In section 3, the internal and external pressures on DRUK are described. We pay special attention to the way in which environmental management is stimulated in the Netherlands. The process (and outcomes) all this pressure led to is analysed in section 4.
