Abstract: 

The objective of present research was to analyze environmental scores in companies when adopting external social policies. We confirmed that location acts as a differentiating factor. We also analyzed the human rights, community and product responsibility policies interaction with Environmental Scores. Our first hypothesis stated that social policies contribute to orientate companies toward environmental aspects and improving environmental scores. The results supported the assumption that better environmental scores are influenced positively by the promotion of social policies. We can conclude that the promotion of social policies positively affects the environmental orientation of the firm. We can argue that company’s capacity to operate guaranteeing the freedom association and excluding child, forced or compulsory labor, to be a good citizen protecting public health and to produce quality goods and services is a measure of being more sensible to promote environmental aspects among their structures and processes. The differences between firms that promote external social policies and those that don’t are evident. Finally, we have determined how location moderates the relative impact of each policy in the environmental performance.
