[Authors' original abstract]

This paper tries to discuss the innovation policies in Brazil and how they encourage companies to implement eco-innovations, considering its important role in Latin America as a developing economy. There is an important gap in literature about the effectiveness of the Brazilian policies in fostering the implementation of eco-innovations by Brazilian firms. This paper focus on addressing this question by analysing Brazilian policies and regulations for eco-innovation and the data from PINTEC (Brazilian Governmental Research on Innovation). The research has a qualitative approach and is carried out as an exploratory study.
