Abstract

This article employs an innovation ecosystem approach to green innovations to understand how actors participate in the development. Thus, using a qualitative approach, we studied four cases of firms that have developed green innovations to analyze how the innovation ecosystem affects the firm. Data was collected through in-depth interviews and it was content analyzed. Our findings show that many actors can constitute innovation ecosystems. The most mentioned ones are suppliers, consultants and experts, and universities. Our findings contribute to the literature on green innovation by providing solid notions of the innovation ecosystem’s impact on firms.
