Issue: 2019
Product responsibility performance is an important indicator of the sustainability behaviors of firms. The paper examines the relationship between various board level and firm variables such as board diversity, board size and firm size with the product responsibility performance of the firms from the global emerging market. A sample of 403 firms from 36 nations has been analyzed for the purpose by having a lag of one year between dependent and independent variables. Results show that total size, board size and board diversity (in terms of percentage of women) significantly affect product responsibility rating. Implications of results for theory and practice are also discussed.
