The rhetoric of corporate environmental responsibility is now being extended to developing countries, but very little is known about the actual environmental performance of big business. * How far is the greening of business a reality in the South? * Are large corporations contributing significantly to sustainable development by pursuing their business interests in an environmentally responsible manner? * What combination of measures are likely to work in expanding corporate environmental good practice? The contributors examine corporate self-regulation, environmental reporting, voluntary codes of conduct, the complementary approaches needed, including governmental regulatory measures and incentives, and the role of citizens' movements and NGOs in holding business to account. The strengths and weaknesses of a wide range of environmental policies and contexts are assessed.
