Abstract Although high standards of corporate governance (CG) are critical to ensure financial stability and sustain growth, how multidimensions of CG work in concert to influence corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities in mining sector is still unknown. Using a sample of 214 firm-year listed mining state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in China from 2008 to 2016, and fuzzy-set/qualitative comparative analysis, we explore which configurations of CG dimensions result in different levels of CSR ...

Abstract Although it is widely accepted that mining firms should be involved in corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities, we do notice that CSR engagement is relatively high-cost, especially considering the fact that mineral products have suffered from an extended period of lower and volatile commodity prices. Therefore, we explore how mining firms “do well by doing good”. Using a sample of listed mining firms in China over the period covering 2008 to 2017 and fuzzy-set/qualitative compa...

Abstract This article addresses whether, which and when peer firms matter for the focal firm’s corporate social performance (CSP), to modify the underlying assumption among prior studies that firms invest in CSP in isolation. Building on institutional isomorphism theory, legitimacy theory and knowledge spillover theory, we argue that the focal firm learns from peers in dealing with stakeholder demands due to uncertainty, while legitimacy pressure and knowledge spillover could help cope with unce...

Abstract In the paper, we mainly investigate why China's local governments tend to undermine the rule of central government in restriction of land transfer for energy-intensive industries (EIIs). Built on the standard political economic literature, we hypothesise that political promotion incentive for the local secretary (measured by age and tenure), the de facto “first-in-command” official, regarding rapid economic development, which is encouraged by the existing cadre evaluation system, lead t...

To realise the targets for controlling greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, China has issued three batches of low-carbon pilot programme since 2010. In this paper, we estimate the causal effect of the programme from the perspective of land transfer of energy-intensive industry, by using a difference-in-differences method. We also analyze the role of the local secretary, the de facto "first-in-command" official of local government. The results suggest that the pilot programme has come into play to a...
