Industry is a key player in the transition to a more sustainable society. Nevertheless, even though several efforts have been made in practice and in academia, more research is needed in relation to implementing sustainable solutions. Accordingly, the aim of the paper is to understand how manufacturing organisations can develop their operations to improve their way to respond to and manage change projects driven by environmental requirements. A multiple international case study is conducted, including nine case companies. The paper explores how the key factors for managing environmentally driven change can be integrated in the organisation, from the project the core process and the cultural perspective. A model is developed that can be used for operations managers to support their strategic planning of environmental change projects.
