This paper focusses mainly on environmental liability. However, when the behavioral consequences of liabilities are studied and strategic decision-making processes are described, other incentives to take environmental care are identified. As governments, like the Dutch government, increasingly aim to rely on changing the behavior of organizations by indirect and voluntary regulations, there is a need for more empirical data on actual decision-making processes within organizations and the way in which "environmental" aspects are dealt with. The paper describes some preliminary results of a study within the Dutch electricity sector.
