This paper provides a production planning model considering reactive and proactive environmental management. Based on the traditional production planning model manufacturing companies that choose reactive environmental management, maximize their profit under consideration of emission standards for different pollutants. These state-defined standards are indicated by emission constraints that also include the possibility of investments in filters to reduce the emissions. Proactive environmental behavior leads to an objective function, which minimizes the emissions of the pollutants. Here, the impact of different pollutants is reflected by weights that can be fixed by the company and have a strong impact on the optimal solution. The paper will show under which conditions dual prices can be used as suitable weights.
