Businesses employ different strategies to manage legislative
requirements; however, there is little science-based understanding of
the strategies that are in use. This study introduces a general
legislation maturity model for businesses that includes company
profiles, strategies and activity levels in relation to legislative
requirements. Four strategies, namely defensive, adaptive, proactive and
lead, are described through a case study of legislative sustainability
requirements for biofuels in the EU that are organised according to
their urgency and validity to biofuel producers, and the associated
activity levels. This model will help managers to identify the
strategies they employ, more systematically select strategies,
understand the spatial and temporal scales and more efficiently allocate
legislation management resources. The legislation maturity profiles,
strategies, activities and urgency-validity framework are applicable in
other industries.
