MNE’s sustainability strategies in emerging and developing markets
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
Methodology: Positivism and a deductive research approach are used to test propositions through a multiple case study strategy, to identify the sustainability strategies of five MNEs belonging in five different industries, and the antecedents of these strategies.
Findings: Strategic leadership and strategic behaviour/ orientation are among the most important antecedents of sustainability strategies development in EDMs. The sustainability strategies are partially industry-specific. However, all companies had undertaken activities that go beyond the mitigation of their negative impact, acting as regulators of the EDMs.
Originality/Value: Previous literature has explained sustainability as an attempt of the MNEs to cover institutional voids and the absence/ failings of the state. This paper contributes to the exploration of sustainability strategies of MNEs in EDMs, by identifying the strategic and market influences driving sustainability, and by linking this strategic behaviour to industrial and institutional idiosyncrasies.
