Abstract:The empirical analysis shows that TQEM adoption and innovativeness differ in the extent to which they promote different types of P2. Additionally, TQEM adoption and innovativeness operate as substitutes in promoting raw material, process and product modification types of P2. Strong location-based regulatory threat and public pressure also result in more P2 activities. Smaller firms and those which have lower on-site releases and lower off-site releases also adopt more P2 activities.
