Technologies to mitigate climate change may diffuse from green lead markets
to the rest of the world through a number of market mechanisms, thereby
contributing importantly to the global green transformation. An established
body of literature has shown that multinational enterprises (MNEs) transfer
technology globally through investment-centered value chains, as firms seek
to exploit knowledge in foreign subsidiaries. The Global Value Chain (GVC)
literature proposes that lead firms tend to keep strategic innovation
activities in headquarters located in lead-markets and only distribute the
non-strategic innovation activities. In other words, cutting-edge
innovation capability tends to remain in home countries, whereas only
incremental innovation occurs in host country subsidiaries.

The section welcomes contributions about:

·      Green Foreign Direct Investments

·      Sustainability in Global Value Chains

·      Sustainability in MNEs strategies

·      The role of GVC in promoting green innovation
