Corporate Environmental Policies (Corporate Environmental Policies)
How do CEOs, owners, and board members affect the environmental efficiency of the firms they head? Despite the centrality of such question to understand why some firms pollute more than others, the existing evidence on this topic remains limited. Using comprehensive data on Danish firms, this project aims at investigating the many determinants of the adoption and success of environmental policies at the company level. The ambition of the project is to provide new insights on how to formulate policies that are both cost-efficient for the firms and effective in reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the aggregate level.
