Libor Šimek "Influence of Economic Crisis on Application of EMS Criterion in Selection of Logistic Service Providers" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-5 | Issue-1, December 2020, pp.175-182, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd35811.pdf

The aim of the paper consists in answering the question whether providers of logistic services can benefit from implementing and maintaining an environmental management system (EMS), especially with regard to intensified competition pressure in time of macroeconomic crisis. It is hypothesized there may exist data indicating that the economic crisis of 2008-2009 influenced whether businesses – as a criterion applied in the framework of their supplier selection process – consider the fact whether their potential provider of logistic services has EMS (Environment Management System)implemented in its organizational structure. The analysis comprises a sample of 293 companies pursuing their entrepreneurial entities in the Czech Republic. Based on testing the difference between 2 proportions of the EMS criterion application, the research compares the situation in the year closely preceding (2006) and following (2010) the crisis. The analysis not only regards the examined sample of the companies as a homogenous statistical selection, but also as a heterogeneous one, which means that the originally homogenous company sample is divided into 6 disjunctive subgroups (strata) based on the number of the company employees. The stratification makes it possible to carry out a yet more detailed analysis of the detected differences in the EMS criterion application. The aim of the paper is not to speculate about the differences ascertained, but identify and describe them in a systematic and statistical exact manner.
