The research investigated the eff ects of Japanese enterprises in domestic eco-industrial development. Several attempts have been initiated between the Thai and Japanese governments to transform existing Thai industrial estates into eco-industrial estate. In 2012, the Thai and Japanese governments promoted a development of an eco-conscious industrial estate referred to as a One Stop Service (OSS) model project in Amata Nakorn industrial estate. Past attempts, however, have stalled or presented very little progress. Th ere has been no study to investigate the key factors impacting on the transformation. This study found that key factors impacting the eco-industrial estate development in Th ailand were economic, institutional, financial, organizational and socio cultural factors. To promote and transform eco-industrial estate development in the future, the project management needs to achieve high cost reduction, more government involvement and raise the awareness of all stakeholders.
