Based on unique firm-level microdata, this study adopts the conditional logit model to empirically evaluate the impact of the environmental tax on the siting of foreign-invested manufacturing enterprises. We also explore the trade-offs of the environmental tax by assessing its economic costs and benefits. This study finds that the environmental tax has a statistically significant and negative impact on the siting of foreign-invested enterprises, as verified by a series of robustness checks. This result implies a trade-off of the environmental tax, reducing pollutant emissions at the expense of damaging economic growth. Heterogeneous analysis finds that the siting is remarkably more sensitive for foreign-invested enterprises that are sole-venture, in high-polluting industries, small-scale, or hosted by developing countries. The other trade-off is outlined: although the environmental tax reduces the number of newly registered foreign-invested enterprises, it brings some economic benefits by making the structure of foreign investment cleaner and more advanced.

As places that disrupt “business as usual,” community food gardens carry the potential to experientially, critically, and restoratively recenter food systems and interconnected sustainability knowledges. Using interdisciplinary theory and practice-based observation, we zero in on the environmental planning and management space of the university campus to interpret how food gardens may not only materially change the campus landscape at a grassroots level but also act as constitutive forms of positive environmental communication. In doing so, food gardens may help realign the environmental premises of the university. At a time when universities have pressing leadership roles in rethinking the ecocultural, political, and economic dimensions of sustainable transformations of life as a whole, we illustrate how the creation of food gardens on all campuses might meaningfully and relationally reconnect university communities with the land where they work, learn, and teach, and, in the process, experientially promote ecocentric identities and empower change-making.

This research explores the effect of green human resource management (GHRM) practices on employee green behavior (EGB). A conceptual model involving two double-moderations is developed and tested with the data collected from 397 respondents from various industries in India. Hayes’s PROCESS macros were used in testing the hypotheses. Consistent with the Ability-Motivation-Opportunity (AMO) and Social Identity Theory (SIT), the green recruitment strategies (GRS) and green institutional initiatives (GII) positively predict EGB. The results indicate that the significant three-way interaction between GRS, employee green training and development (E-GTD), and employee green participation and involvement (E-GPI) influenced EGB. The findings also suggest that the three-way interaction between GII, employee green performance management, appraisal (E-GPMA), employee green compensation, and rewards (E-GCR) influencing the EGB was significant. The implications for green human resource management (G-HRM) and sustainability are discussed.

Stakeholder engagement is critical to bridge gaps between academic knowledge production and application for environmental resources. Q Methodology, a qualitative and quantitative protocol, is well suited to address environmental planning and management issues through rigorous analysis of stakeholder perspectives. We review several methodological applications that have been used with or within Q Methodology aiming to improve environmental management, inform decision-making and policy, and build consensus. We review their deployment across six domains: (1) Q-set: discourse identification and concourse creation; (2) P-set: strategies to select participants and promote stakeholder engagement; (3) Q-sorts: interaction with respondents during data production; (4) Comparisons: geographic and temporal comparisons; (5) Graphics: visualization techniques to improve interpretation and dissemination; and (6) Methods: the use of complementary and mixed methods. We discuss their utility for environmental planning and management and provide recommendations for integrating these procedures into future research.

This article deals with the development of the mobility sector in a very specific area in Germany. The Rhenish coal-mining area has to tackle an ongoing structural change. With the phase-out of lignite-based power generation, (infra-) structural changes and further resulting challenges will arise in the area between Aachen and Cologne in the coming years and decades. Within the framework of the field of action “Mobility” in the Rhenish coal-mining area, the DAZWISCHEN (In Between) (“As of March 17, 2023 the project listed on its website”) is investigating the current spatio-structural state as well as the possibilities for quantitative modelling of individual indicators up to the year 2040. In this article, “mobility” is understood as the spatial change in the location of people and households in daily life using different means of transport. Against this background, the modal share is considered as the central parameter. This describes the distribution of transport demand among different means of transport. Based on the status quo of the current mobility behaviour of the population in the Rhenish coal-mining area, future scenarios show which measures can be used to reduce CO2 emissions in transport in order to achieve the Paris climate targets. The results can show local decision-makers in the Rhenish coal-mining area which measures are necessary to achieve this.
