FEEM-IEFE seminar on: "Firm-level and industry-level factors as drivers of environmental innovations"



In recent years, the heightened importance of the environmental agenda has increasingly placed environmental innovations (EI) in the forefront of policy maker and corporate action. While extant literature has analyzed mainly external factors driving EI adoption, the study presented during this seminar emphasizes salient firm-level factors, using data from the 2008 Community Innovation Survey (CIS) on Italian manufacturing firms that specifically addresses EI. The paper further contributes to the literature by distinguishing between different categories of production-related and product-related EIs. In addition, responding to recent calls for research on environmental CSR at multiple levels, the study investigate industry-level regulatory environment (ETS), growth, and pollution prevention proactiveness.
