Recently, several orporations all over the globe have embraced the publication of corporate communications, particularly the disclosure of CSR reports which generally include the environmental topic (Livesey, 2002) as a way to demonstrate the sustainability and transparency of their business. For MNCs operating in developing countries, this pressure will intensify with on-going discussions confronting the ideas that MNCs operating in developing countries may improve the social and environmental situation (Bansal & Roth, 2000) or, the opposed view, that they may only take advantage of the weak social and environmental standards of the developing countries (Strike, Gao & Bansat 2006).This paper’s interest is to explore the circumstances that pressures these American MNCs to follow or not this behaviour when operating abroad, particularly in Mexico.
