In the context of this book, Chapter 4 presents such a study. SEPA (2000) has also noted how the characteristics of sectors are significant for the implementation of EPI. Examples include the ‘proximity’ of the sector activities to environmental events and processes, the existing competence and legal basis for intervening in sector activities, and the technological potential for genuine ‘win–win’ solutions (see Hertin and Berkhout, 2001). Hey (2002) also proposes that sectoral regulatory capacity is a key factor for EPI.

Disagreements may not emerge until the implementation stage, where explicit decisions and trade-offs need to be made, with visible cost redistribution and change of actor responsibilities. This may reflect the inherent need for simplification and generalization at the level of strategic decision making, but possibly also an intentional delegation of more uncomfortable decisions down the government hierarchy. In the context of EU transport policy, Hey (2002) found that EPI is relatively strong at the agenda setting stage, which is supranational and strategic in nature and where environmental coalitions are influential.
