Pollution, Production, and Sectoral Differences in a Transition Economy

Dietrich Earnhart and Lubomir Lizal

Comparative Economic Studies, 2006, vol. 48, issue 4, 662-681

Abstract: This paper analyses corporate environmental performance, as measured by air pollutant emissions, in the transition economy of the Czech Republic. In particular, this paper assesses whether firms face economies and/or diseconomies of scale with respect to pollution control by evaluating the effects of production on emission levels. As important, this paper assesses whether certain sectors face different scales of production – economy or diseconomy – than other sectors. To achieve these objectives, this paper uses an unbalanced panel of Czech firms for the years 1993–1998. Comparative Economic Studies (2006) 48, 662–681. doi:10.1057/palgrave.ces.8100190
