General Deterrence And Corporate Environmental Behavior, Dorothy Thornton, Neil A. Gunningham, Robert A. Kagan

Faculty Scholarship

This research addresses the assumption that“general deterrence” is an important key to enhanced compliance with regulatory laws. Through a survey of 233 firms in several industries in the United States, we sought to answer the following questions: (1) When severe legal penalties are imposed against a violator of environmental laws, do other companies in the same industry actually learn about such“signal cases”?

Two forms of slippage are identified: negative, which describes the situation where something that is legally mandated to happen fails to happen; and affirmative, which describes the situation where required standards are renegotiated rather than ignored. This concept of slippage is explored in terms of how it might inform discussions of legal doctrine, environmental policy, and environmental pedagogy. Slippage is good in the context that it can ameliorate the sometimes impractical demands found in statues, and bad in the context that ...
