About the Authors
  • Over the past two decades environmental issues have become important in public and business policy. This book asks why firms sometimes voluntarily adopt environmental policies that go beyond legal requirements. Prakash argues that existing explanations, especially from neoclassical economics, concentrate on external factors at the expense of internal dynamics. His argument is supported by analysis of two firms, Baxter International Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company, including interviews with managers, and access to meetings and documents. The book will be of interest to students of business and environmental studies, as well as political economy and public policy.

    • The environmental policy of business has become increasingly important - this book asks why firms are sometimes more green than they need to be by law
    • Looks at firms from the inside, examining the motives of managers - an original perspective
    • Will appeal to people in politics and economics departments, but also to business schools
