AbstractMauritius embarked on an ambitious project of making the island a model of Sustainable Development in 2008. Over the last five years, the organizational set up for managing the project has been put in place, working groups have been constituted, a series of consultations with stakeholders have been made, a green paper has been published, awareness sessions have been held across the island and a strategic plan around the 5Es covering Energy, Environment, Employment, Education and Equity, has been worked out for implementation [1]. Though the project termed as MID project, has received wide acceptance, it is often argued that private companies are still hesitant on policy and implementation issues. The paper illustrates the status of manufacturing companies vis--vis sustainable practices and highlights the challenges facing these companies in the context of the MID project.
