Abstract

We are interested in explaining firms’ environmental performance, and factors affecting firms’ abilities to improve that performance. We investigate the role of technology as a factor in influencing firms’ environmental strategies. We also consider whether a firm’s primary technology type is a moderating factor between its global environmental strategy and its financial performance.

Keywords: environmental standards, technology adoption
