Title

Language

English

Abstract

This study tests the effects of top management team (TMT) member collectivistic values and TMT dissatisfaction with the financial situation on the environmental ethics of TMT members. We also examine the moderating effect of collectivistic values on the relationship between financial dissatisfaction and environmental ethics. Analyses of multi-level and source data show that financial dissatisfaction of the TMT negatively affects TMT members' environmental ethics. However, TMT members' individual collectivism can increase TMT members' environmental ethics. Analyses also show that TMT members' collectivism moderates the relationship between financial dissatisfaction and environmental ethics across individual and team levels. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
