Abstract

This article analyses the relationship among the environmental behavior, external factors, and economic/environmental performance. Most of the previous researches id not explain causal relationship between economic performance and environmental performance. In this paper, we analyzed the relationship in Japanese manufacturing firms. The findings of analysis indicate that external factors are not necessarily effective to stimulate positive action by firm. Rather, it shows that corporate strategy stimulates organizational practices for environment and leads to better environmental performance.
