Abstract:
What drives eco-innovation? This study integrates the managerial cognition perspective and the resource dependency perspective to examine how managerial environmental awareness (i.e., managerial environmental risk awareness and managerial environmental cost-benefit awareness) and external resource acquisition (i.e., from business networks and political networks) affect corporate eco-innovation activities (i.e., eco-management innovation, eco-process innovation, and eco-product innovation), and analyzes their interaction effects. A sample of 144 firms in Zhejiang province in China supports our hypotheses.
