Profit and Non-profit companies facing environmental issue Companies’ action has be usually seen as antagonist to the environment. Environmental organisations have fought for a long period against entrepreneurs threatening the ecosystems. The paper seeks to understand at analytical level the reasons of such contraposition. A better understanding of that can help to reduce the environmental problem and to evaluate the many policy instruments elaborated for regulating the economic activities. Three approaches can summarise the research field: the company attempts to reduce uncertainty, the regulations of firm negative side effects and the company ‘altruistic’ identity as source of voluntary commitment to environmental issue.
