A theoretical framework for investigating the determinants of corporate environmental policy
by William R. Holmes
Interdisciplinary Environmental Review (IER), Vol. 10, No. 1/2, 2008


Abstract: Factors influencing corporate environmental policy decision-making often result in the formulation and implementation of significantly different environmental policies in firms of similar size in the same industry. A complex network of interrelationships between internal and external stakeholders together with macro level institutional influences and micro level intra-firm dynamics is ultimately what influences corporate environmental management within individual firms. A theoretical framework combining stakeholder theory with new institutionalism can be used to illustrate the interactions which ultimately determine environmental policy formulation and adoption by individual corporations.
