AB  - This study investigates the factors that drive high levels of corporate sustainability performance in an
emerging country, Brazil. The level of said performance is proxied by membership of the Bovespa
Corporate Sustainability Index. Using a framework combining stakeholder theory and a resource-based
perspective, we examine the incentives for Brazilian listed firms to invest in corporate sustainability and
develop a number of hypotheses that relate corporate sustainability performance both with operating
and with financing characteristics. Our results indicate that Brazilian leading corporate sustainability
performance firms are significantly larger and have a larger return on equity than their counterparts,
which is consistent with previous findings for US firms. Additionally, Brazilian leading corporate sustainability
performance firms also have significantly lower ownership concentration and they are more
likely to have international listing status than their counterparts. Thus, our findings suggest that
financing characteristics are likely to have higher significance in determining corporate sustainability
performance in emerging markets, such as Brazil, than in developed countries
