    The Effect of Sustainability Standard Uncertainty on Certification Decisions of Firms in Emerging Economies.Ivan Montiel, Petra Christmann & Trevor Zink - 2019 - Journal of Business Ethics 154 (3):667-681.
    Voluntary sustainability standards that establish global rules for firms’ environmental and/or social conduct and allow for verification of firm compliance via third-party certification hold the promise to govern firms’ sustainability conduct in a globalizing world economy. However, the recent proliferation of competing and overlapping global sustainability standards that have been developed by various stakeholders with different agendas, creates uncertainties for firms that likely reduce their propensity to adopt any standard. Without widespread adoption these standards cannot effectively govern firm conduct and (...)

    New Ways of Teaching: Using Technology and Mobile Apps to Educate on Societal Grand Challenges.Ivan Montiel, Javier Delgado-Ceballos, Natalia Ortiz-de-Mandojana & Raquel Antolin-Lopez - 2019 - Journal of Business Ethics 161 (2):243-251.
    We use this editorial essay as a call for a more effective use of new technologies, such as mobile apps and Web 2.0 tools, to educate students and other relevant stakeholders on business ethics, corporate social responsibility, and sustainability topics. We identify three overarching reasons that justify the need for new ways of teaching that further incorporate technology to foster the innovative thinking needed to tackle imminent societal grand challenges such as climate change and increasing inequality. First, we are facing (...)

    The Adoption of Voluntary Environmental Management Programs in Mexico: First Movers as Institutional Entrepreneurs.Ivan Montiel & Bryan W. Husted - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 88 (S2):349 - 363.
    This article analyzes the adoption of voluntary environmental management programs by firms operating in Mexico. Mexican firms can obtain national certification (Clean Industry) and/or international certification (ISO 14001). Based on institutional entrepreneurship theory, we posit that the role played by first movers as institutional entrepreneurs is crucial if these programs are to become established with sufficient strength and appeal. This understanding is especially important in an environment where more than one program can be adopted. We tested several hypotheses on the (...)

    A Conceptualization of How Firms Invest in CSR Based on Country Risk.Linda C. Rodríguez & Ivan Montiel - 2011 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 22:309-315.
    We look at the relationship of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and country risk. We conceptualize the relationship first by asking if there is a correlationand then positing the directionality of the relationship. We posit that there is an inverse or negative correlation of implicit CSR with country risk and a positive correlation between explicit CSR and country risk. Understanding this relationship can help firms respond to a variety of external pressures such as those from activist organizations and stockholder disciplining; thus, (...)

    Corporate Social Responsibility Instruments and the New ISO 26000: Redundant or Complementary?Maria Rosa Rovira Val, Anna Zinenko & Ivan Montiel - 2011 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 22:316-326.
    The last ten years have seen particularly strong changes in corporate social responsibility, with the introduction of new instruments such as the UnitedNations Global Compact in 2000 and the Global Reporting Initiative Sustainability Reporting Guidelines in 1998. These instruments propose voluntary tools to address CSR. In November 2010, the International Organization for Standardization released the new social responsibility guidance under ISO 26000. It is important to understand the contribution of ISO 26000 to already existing CSR instruments and the connections between (...)

    The Grand Challenge of Human Health: A Review and an Urgent Call for Business–Health Research.Remy Balarezo, Bryan W. Husted, Ivan Montiel & Junghoon Park - 2022 - Business and Society 61 (5):1353-1415.
    Considering the urgency of addressing grand challenges that affect human health and achieving the ambitious health targets set by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the role of business in improving health has become critical. Yet, our systematic review of the business–health literature reveals that business research focuses primarily on occupational health and safety, health care organizations, and health regulations. To embrace the health externalities generated by business activities, we propose that future research should investigate the conditions under which business (...)

    Environmental Performance Implications of Certified Management Standards in Mexico: ISO 14001 and Clean Industry.Bryan W. Husted & Ivan Montiel - 2007 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 18:314-317.
    This study analyzes the adoption and performance implications of two certified management standards in Mexico. Basing our predictions on strategic balance theory we find that those firms seeking for higher levels of differentiation or legitimacy show inferior environmental performance that firms demonstrating higher strategic balance.

The paper traces the evolution of CSR marketing and discusses a flexible definition of CSR. The value of this study is to improve competitive advantage and firm performance by identifying and aligning CSR strategies and CSR marketing strategies with the Reactor, Prospector, Analyzer, and Defender strategy typology.

Several years ago Doug passed away of cancer and in June 2013 Mott suffered a fatal electrocution while repairing a piece of equipment. Edmond was now thrust into the leadership position and left to decide what direction GCC should take. The GCC product line was becoming increasingly popular both on the island and internationally and demand was high,but the original vision for the company was (...)

    The International Diffusion of ISO 14001 in the Chemical Industry.Magali A. Delmas & Ivan Montiel - 2005 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 16:200-204.
    This paper investigates the determinants of the diffusion of the international environmental management system standard ISO 14001 within the chemical industry using a panel of 126 different countries during the period 2000 to 2003. We investigate how institutional pressure originating from different stakeholders such as governments, businesses, and the civil society and forces related to trade will drive the diffusion. Our results show that the level of community involvement within a particular country and the previous experience of businesses with voluntary (...)

    The Impact of Institutional Pressures to Adopt ISO 14001 Among Automotive Suppliers in North America.Ivan Montiel - 2005 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 16:211-216.
    Voluntary management standards have recently become a new form of industrial coordination. Once an organization implements a management practice, theorganization may then voluntarily apply for a third party certification to demonstrate compliance with a certain standard. Based on the principles of institutional theory, various scholars have analyzed how various elements of the institutional environment influence the adoption of these new management standards. However, missing in the literature, is the analysis of how the combination of different institutional pressures shape (e.g. accelerate (...)

    Rainbow Wash or Rainbow Revolution? Dynamic Stakeholder Engagement for SDG-Driven Responsible Innovation.Leopoldo Gutierrez, Ivan Montiel, Jordi A. Surroca & Josep A. Tribo - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics 180 (4):1113-1136.
    The United Nations’ increasing involvement in global sustainability culminated in 2015 with the release of the 2030 Agenda. This agenda puts businesses in the spotlight, and their innovation and stakeholder partnering activities are portrayed as essential strategies for achieving an ambitious set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals. In this study, we identify six distinct dynamic stakeholder engagement strategies—resilient specialists, opportunity explorers, uncommitted diversifiers, rainbow warriors, rainbow washers, and progressive learners—and distinguish two approaches to innovate, depending on the range of SDG (...)
