How and when does top management team motivation influence firm environmental misconduct?

January 18 @ 10:00 - 11:00 CET

Learnings outcomes from the webinar objective

Does top management team (TMT) regulatory focus impact firm environmental misconduct (FEM)? If so, how and when?

Integrating upper echelons theory with regulatory focus theory, we examine how regulatory focus, as one of the most direct and important psychological characteristics of TMT, impacts FEM. Additionally, we explore how this relationship is moderated by external and internal environmental dynamism from the perspective of regulatory fit. Based on a sample of Chinese listed firms from 2011 to 2017, we conduct computer-aided content analysis to quantify TMT regulatory focus. By examining this motivation-based psychological characteristic of TMT, the findings suggest the need to consider TMT regulatory focus when analyzing the antecedents of FEM.
