摘要

Whereas substantial academic efforts have been devoted to understand how firms respond to the imperatives of sustainable development, there exists many puzzles on why firms’ green actions exhibit intertemporal rapid bursts. Drawing insights from literature politics and economics, this study integrates the political promotion cycle and government rational inattention perspectives to construct a “new way of seeing” to understand fluctuations of firms’ responses to government sustainability policy. We propose a moving spotlight model to capture the dynamics of governments’ attention and its impacts on firms’ actions, and apply it to examine the public firms’ green actions in China. Our preliminary panel estimation results suggest a temporal and spatial dynamic pattern of firms’ green action. Firms conduct less green actions when the central government is evaluating the performance of local officials during their last year of tenure term. In addition, firms locate in more distant regions from Beijing conduct less green activities compared with those in regions closer to Beijing. Our study contributes to the institutional complexity literature by recognizing the dynamics within a single institution, and sheds light on a structural view of institution.
