''Financial and environmental performances in the banking industry: A non-linear approach''
( 2017, Vol. 37 No.4 )
The present paper investigates the impact of corporate financial performance (CFP) on corporate environmental performance (CEP) in the banking industry. Based on the data of French banks from 2008 to 2011, our study reveals that the relationship between CFP and CEP is non-monotonic, thus suggesting that bank CEP increases significantly only after a certain threshold of financial resources is reached. Our study provides unique insights into the CFP-CEP relationship in the banking industry and reveals that adequate financial resources needs to be available in order to foster environmental investment and meet the expectations of a range of stakeholders.
Keywords: Environmental corporate social responsibility, corporate financial performance, curvilinear CFP–CEP relationship, banks
