In the last decades, awide research effort has been devoted at the analysis of the determinants of environmental innovation (EI).Whereas agreement seemed to emerge around a cluster of determinants, mainly “Technology push”, “Market pull”, “Policy push–pull” and “firm specific factors”, empirical analyses have failed to provide strong confirmation on the relevance of some core variables.

Abstract

In the last decades, awide research effort has been devoted at the analysis of the determinants of environmental innovation (EI).Whereas agreement seemed to emerge around a cluster of determinants, mainly “Technology push”, “Market pull”, “Policy push–pull” and “firm specific factors”, empirical analyses have failed to provide strong confirmation on the relevance of some core variables. After a qualitative discussion of this literature,we empirically assess it by exploiting meta-regression-analysis techniques to test the effectiveness of two determinants: policy and R&D. Our findings are clear: as for the first, we showthat only certain types of policy have proven to affect EI, in particular regulatory stringency. As for R&D, we show that the use of estimationmethods is not neutral to the outcome of the primary studies.
