We propose that cross-listing is associated with better environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance, because cross-listed firms adopt ESG practices to mitigate the liability of foreignness (LOF) in foreign financial markets. Institutionalization processes have made ESG practices important for managing challenges associated with the LOF. With tests involving the S&P Global 1200 index, we show that cross-listing improves corporate social responsibility (CSR; i.e., social and environmental dimensions) but not corporate governance. The effects of cross-listing on CSR also depend on investor protection regimes of listing destinations: Stronger regimes correspond with poorer CSR performance, suggesting that they limit managerial discretion.

Why do small businesses in developing countries embrace sustainable business practices and what are the effects on their performance? We address these questions by drawing on the natural-resource based view of the firm to argue that the environmental sustainability orientation of small businesses can be explained by their entrepreneurial orientation. Our study of 197 small businesses in the Philippines shows that an entrepreneurial strategic orientation enables them to develop a more proactive stance toward environmental sustainability practices which lead to superior firm performance. The implications of the findings for future research and for public policy for small businesses are also discussed.

Innovation has long been known to drive growth. There is a growing body of evidence that firms that work to be responsible and produce more sustainable products also receive positive benefits, but how and why these benefits accrue is less well established. Our research addresses this knowledge gap and furthers an understanding of the conditions under which consumers will pay a premium price. We compare consumer responses to a price increase for an innovation with individual, societal, or mutual benefits. We examine a more holistic model than those previously examined, and test for mediation and moderation so that the importance and relative impact of the different factors can be better understood. Our findings have relevance for practitioners and academics. With regard to the latter, we extend the literatures on perceptions of price fairness and equity theory, salience, and pro-social behavior.

In this study we use the stakeholder theory and the attention-based view to investigate two questions: Do investments in ecological and social environments yield comparable economic returns as investments in R&D? Are there economic benefits to pursuing R&D, ecological and social investments simultaneously? Using a longitudinal sample of 5999 Indian firms, we find an ordering of implications such that R&D has a significantly larger impact on economic performance than contribution to the ecological environment, which in turn has a stronger effect than charitable and community contributions. Moreover, we find that ecological and social contributions weaken the effect of R&D, which suggests that managerial attention to innovation can be undermined by a greater emphasis on social responsibility. Our study illustrates the difficulty of simultaneous attention to innovation and social responsibility.
