The main purpose of this paper is to develop a model that analyzes factors influencing the adoption of green innovations for the small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs). From the perspective of technical innovation, the determinant factors consist of technological, organizational and environmental dimensions. A questionnaire survey on small and medium-size enterprises was conducted to test proposed research hypotheses. Based on the survey results, we found that technological characteristics of green innovations, organizational characteristics, governmental supports, customer pressure and regulatory pressure have significantly influences on green innovation adoption for SMEs while the influence of environmental uncertainty is not significant. Practical implications of research findings are discussed.
Key words: Green innovation adoption, small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs), determinants of innovation, technical innovation.
