We use microdata from Chile to examine the relationship between foreign ownership and the environmental performance of firms. We make a distinction between exporting vs. non-exporting foreign firms. We proxy environmental performance by a measure of emission intensity. We find that foreign firms that serve only the domestic markets have higher emission intensity than foreign exporters.
