Abstract

This paper examines the determinants of corporate green investments (GI) by using a series of both firm- and country-level factors. We use environmental expenditures as a proxy for green investments on a firm level. We find that bigger firms tend to invest more in green projects, whereas more profitable firms are less likely to go green. In terms of country-level determinants, we find that GDP per capita and surface area are negatively related with GI
