Professor Lenny Koh and collaborators publish a paper investigating voluntary environmental management
Drawing on the strategic choice and the resource-based view perspectives, results were reported from a survey of VEM practices–a speciﬁc form of self-governance–drawing on a sample of 519 Turkish ﬁrms from various industries to identify important strategic antecedents of ﬁrms’ decisions to engage in such practices.
Professor Lenny Koh commented “Our study put an important spotlight on advancing the understanding of why firms practice voluntary environmental management within an emerging market.
Our study found as firms become more customer-focused, seek differentiation and subject to a higher level of strategy-oriented stakeholder focus, they tend to implement higher levels of voluntary environmental management practices.”
The University’s four flagship institutes bring together our key strengths to tackle global issues, turning interdisciplinary and translational research into real-world solutions.
