Exporting and Environmental Performance: Where You Export Matters
Empirical analyses that rely on micro-level panel data have found that exporters are generally less pollutant than non-exporters. While alternative explanations have been proposed, firm level data has not been used to examine the role of destination markets behind the relationship between exports and pollution. In this paper we argue that because consumers in high-income countries have higher valuations for clean environments than consumers in developing countries, exporters targeting high-income countries are more likely to improve their environmental outcomes than exporters targeting destinations where valuations for the environment are not high. Using a panel of firm-level data from Chile we find support to this hypothesis. A 10 percentage point increase in the share of exports to high-income countries is associated with a reduction in CO2 pollution intensity of about 16%. The results have important implications for firms in developing countries aiming to target high-income markets.

The Impact of ISO 14001 Environmental Standards on Exports
Analyses that examine the role of international standards on export performance has been concentrated on quality certifications. Very little is known about the impact of environmental certifications on exports. In this paper we employ firm-level data from Ecuador to assess the impact of the ISO 14001 environmental certification on export outcomes. The results show that holding an ISO 14001 increases the likelihood of becoming an exporter by 0.31 percentage points (equivalent to 4%), and that this positive effect is concentrated among large firms. We did not find evidence that the environmental certification has a causal impact on the level or the growth rate of exports. Consequently, the results suggest that the ISO 14001 certification is most useful in reducing information frictions, allowing firms to initiate export transactions.

El papel de las pymes en el crecimiento de las exportaciones de los países
Las pequeñas y medianas empresas (pymes) pueden contribuir significativamente al crecimiento y la diversificación de las exportaciones de un país en el largo plazo, y las organizaciones de promoción del comercio (OPC) pueden cumplir una función importante en este proceso en los países en desarrollo. A esta conclusión llegamos tras analizar datos transaccionales de las exportaciones peruanas registradas en un cuarto de siglo, entre 1994 y 2019. Hagamos una analogía con las películas. Las superestrellas de las exportaciones son
