Project Description

This position will remain open until as suitable candidate has been found.

It is well understood that firms violating environmental regulations would suffer from their own wrongdoing, but less is known about how such environmental violations may also affect their buyers along the supply chains. Although in general buyers’ performance could be affected by their suppliers’ environmental violations, it is unclear how the magnitude of such effects may vary across different buyers, suppliers, supply chains, and industries. This research intends to gain a better understanding of not only whether but also how buyers suffer from their suppliers’ environmental violations. In particular, it will provide a systematic analysis of how the magnitude of such effects may depend on various factors at different levels (e.g., firms, supply chains, and industries).
