Tóm tắt: Environmental protection is an inevitable issue that developing countries all have to deal with during the process of inviting foreign direct investment (FDI). However, high correlation between FDI and pollution doesn’t necessarily indicate that foreign firms are to blame. In this paper, we apply firm-level panel data in Vietnam and unique information on waste discharge to show that foreign firms are actually more active to acquire ISO14001, a voluntary environmental standard. And the adoption will in turn improve firms’ performance in waste control. It also increases firms’ welfare as well as their productivity level. This paper provides strong evidence that firms’ efforts towards corporate social responsibility will eventually benefit themselves as well.
