Corporate governance and environmental performance: Is there really a link?

Item Type Journal paper
Abstract

Corporate governance scholars are increasingly interested in firms’ social and environmental performance. Empirical research in this area, however, has moved forward in an uncoordinated fashion, producing fragmented and contradictory results. Our paper seeks to address this situa- tion by adopting a fact-based research approach that comprehensively explores the link between corporate governance and environmental performance. Specifically, we aim to understand how the relationships between and among the firms’ owners, managers, and boards of directors influ- ence environmental performance. We are particularly interested in understanding the interactions among these three key sets of actors. In the end, we offer some observations about governance practices and discuss the implications for theory.
