Environmental Adaptation by Small and Medium Sized Textile and Garment Companies in Vietnam Is Governance an Issue? Nga H. Nguyen, Robert J.S. Beeton, Anthony Halog and An T. Duong Abstract Institutional theory emphasizes the social context in which fi rms operate and explains the role of institutions in shaping organizational responses. Following this theory, if a fi rm fails to conform to institutionalized norms, its legitimacy and survival is threatened. This chapter uses institutional theory as a tool to understand the in fl uence of current institutional mechanisms on the adaptive capacity of textiles and garment small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Vietnam in response to national and international environmental requirements. Field work undertaken in Vietnam in 2013 enabled 21 interviews with policymakers, experts, and textiles and garment enterprises. The interviews revealed a number of problems with the current environmental legislation as well as the governance system in Vietnam. These problems are considered as barriers for the environmental adaptation process at textiles and garment SMEs in Vietnam. Keywords Environmental adaptation Á Textiles and garment Á SME Á Governance 1 Introduction To understand a complex and dynamic system such as environmental adaptation, we need to understand not only the attitudes of key actors and systems of concerns but also the larger context in which the system operates (Boccara 2004 ; Moser and N.H.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
