technology type, global environmental standards
We describe the role of technological change and technology type in affecting environmental performance. We argue that one of the key constraints on a firm’s ability to improve its environmental performance is the technology in which it is embedded. We develop hypotheses regarding the influence of technology type on a firm’s global environmental strategy, and test these hypotheses using a panel of MNEs. We find that technology type does influence a firm’s global environmental strategy, and the financial return associated with using a global environmental standard.
