Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • Cogitating the role of technological innovation and institutional quality on environmental degradation in G-7 countries   Order a copy of this article
    by Ahsan Anwar, Summaira Malik 
    Abstract: The present study examined the association between economic growth, technological innovation, institutional quality, renewable energy consumption, population, and CO2 emission for G-7 economies for the period 19962018. Different estimation techniques were used to check the robustness of empirical outcomes. Breitung and Im, Pesaran and Shin unit root tests were applied to confirm the stationarity of the variables. Co-integration among the variables was confirmed by Kao-residuals, Johansen-Fisher, and Pedroni panel co-integration tests. The long-run association was checked by applying Fully Modified Ordinary Least Square and Dynamic Ordinary Least Square methods. The results indicated that economic growth and population increase environmental pollution whereas technological innovation, institutional quality, and renewable energy consumption impede CO2 emissions. The findings suggest that the governments of G-7 countries should promote and subsidise green energy, environment-friendly equipment, and machinery not only for small but also for large-scale industries to decrease the reliance on fossil fuel-based energy. Results also proposed to increase institutional quality to further mitigate environmental pollution.
    Keywords: technological innovation; institutional quality; renewable energy consumption; CO2 emissions; G-7 countries.

  • How globalisation and environmental policy stringency affect the environmental terms of trade? The case of the V4 countries   Order a copy of this article
    by Athanasios Kampas, Katarzyna Czech, Stelios Rozakis 
    Abstract: This paper examines the links between globalisation and environmental policy stringency with the environmental terms of trade. The existence of dynamic links among the variables were explored using cross-correlations and Granger Causality tests. According to the results, the de jure and the de facto globalisation measures have different environmental impacts. Also, despite the fact that all V4 countries have introduced strict environmental policies, especially since 2000, the relative strength of these policies lag behind the maximum OECD stringency. As a result, the pollution heaven hypothesis cannot be excluded. The policy implications of the results are briefly discussed.
    Keywords: pollution haven hypothesis; globalisation; ecological footprint; environmental terms of trade.

  • Relationship between green marketing and behavioural intention: empirical evidence from Indian consumers   Order a copy of this article
    by Trilok Pratap Singh, Utkal Khandelwal 
    Abstract: In India, the increasing awareness toward environmental issues and consumer demand for eco-friendly products has made the companies shift from their conventional marketing practices to green marketing. Thus, the aim of this research was to examine the impact of green marketing variables on behavioral intentions (BI) with mediating effect of consumer attitude (CA). The empirical result derived from this study provides a green marketing framework that comprises of eight different constructs. The entire green marketing construct establishes a direct significant relationship with BI. However, partial mediation of CA have been found in the relationship of green marketing variables and BI. Good number of research studies have been done on green marketing in the Western world; however, there is a scarcity of these studies in India. This is one of the unique research measuring green marketing and its impact on CA and BI with eight different constructs among Indian consumers.
    Keywords: green marketing; environmental concerns; consumer attitude; behavioural intention; sustainable competitive advantage.
