Abstract

The monograph analyzes environmental practice of transnational corporations (TNCs) at the end of the 20th – beginning of the 21st century. The study investigates into the reasons for differing environmental practices of TNCs thorough the world and in Russia in particular. The author researches both external and internal factors of corporate environmental practices. First, the monograph covers the impact of government environmental regulations on foreign direct investment in host economies and environmental practices of corporations. Second, it is established that environmental performance of a company depends on the stage of its life-cycle, ownership structure, and ‘portfolio’ of technologies and equipment. Conclusions are given as to development of economic leverage of making corporate practices in Russia more environmentally friendly. The book is addressed to economists, environmentalists and everyone interested in the topical issues of Russia’s integration into the global economy and nature conservation.
