Subjects: Natural-Resource-Based View (NRBV), Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Proactive Environmental Strategies (PES), Employee Stakeholders, Shared Vision, Environmental Performance, Organisations and the Natural Environment (ONE), Stakeholder Integration, Environmental Management
Drawing on the natural-resource-based view, we propose that employee stakeholder integration is linked to environmental performance through firms’ proactive environmental strategies, and that this link is contingent on shared vision. We tested our model with a cross-country and multi-industry sample. In support of our theory, results revealed that firms’ proactive environmental strategies translated employee stakeholder integration into environmental performance. This relationship was pronounced for high levels of shared vision. Our findings demonstrate that shared vision represents a key condition for advancing the corporate greening agenda through proactive environmental strategies. We discuss implications for the CSR and environmental management literatures, with a particular focus on the natural-resource-based view and stakeholder integration debates Unión Europea E06D101365BR
