Project description

This project studies the importance of norms and moral considerations on environmental choices undertaken by different agents like consumers, workers, managers and investors. We seek to answer the following four questions: First, how are people’s environmentally motivated behavior affected by context and framing effects, and how does this affect environmental policy? Second, to what extent, empirically, do workers consider high corporate social responsibility as part of their job’s compensation package, and to what extent are those who do so more responsible and productive workers? Third, how is trade of pollution permits affected by norms that view such trade as a stigma, and what influences the strength of the stigma over time? Finally, how is private R&D in environment-friendly technology affected by the existence of “green” customers, employees, management, investors and government?
