  1. ISO 14001 Certification and Corporate Technological Innovation: Evidence From Chinese Firms.Wenlong He & Rui Shen - 2019 - Journal of Business Ethics 158 (1):97-117.
    While a growing body of literature has examined the link between green activities and firm innovation, little attention has been paid to the underlying mechanisms through which green activities take effect. This paper leverages the context of ISO 14001 certification among Chinese listed firms to investigate how the certification of environmental management system to ISO 14001 shapes corporate technological innovation. Drawing from the resource-based view and the resource management perspective, we argue that EMS certification to ISO 14001 facilitates corporate technological (...)

  • Motives and Performance Outcomes of Sustainable Supply Chain Management Practices: A Multi-Theoretical Perspective.Antony Paulraj, Injazz J. Chen & Constantin Blome - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 145 (2):239-258.
    Many researchers believe the tremendous industrial development over the past two centuries is unsustainable because it has led to unintended ecological deterioration. Despite the ever-growing attention sustainable supply-chain management has received, most SSCM research and models look at the consequences, rather than the antecedents or motives of such responsible practices. The few studies that explore corporate motives have remained largely qualitative, and large-scale empirical analyses are scarce. Drawing on multiple theories and combining supply-chain and business ethics literature, we purport that (...)

  • Understanding Firms’ Approaches to Voluntary Certification: Evidence From Multiple Case Studies in FSC Certification.Kathryn Bowler, Pavel Castka & Michaela Balzarova - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 145 (2):441-456.
    Voluntary certifications, such as Forestry Stewardship Council in the forestry sector, are used to manage sustainable and socially responsible practices in firms. Even though the certifications are based on standards, it has been reported that adopting firms are nothing but a homogeneous cohort of adopters and in fact differ in their approaches to the certification. In this paper, we conceptualize firms’ approach to certification and link the approaches to various aspects of certification. Using an inductive approach and deriving our data (...)

  • The Interplay Between Private and Public Regulations: Evidence From ISO 14001 Adoption Among Chinese Firms.Wenlong He, Wei Yang & Seong-jin Choi - 2018 - Journal of Business Ethics 152 (2):477-497.
    Extant studies on private regulation have not reached a sufficient understanding about the interplay between private and public regulations, due to underdeveloped theoretical framework and the lack of large-sample empirical investigations. Leveraging ISO 14001 adoption among Chinese firms as the research context, the current research draws on the institutional theory to examine how firm’s adoption of ISO 14001 standard, as a specific form of private regulation, affects the incidence of public environmental inspections. To test our arguments, we conduct two empirical (...)
