MultiNational Enterprises (MNEs) are often perceived as the cause of environmental degradation in developing countries. Through the lens of organisational buying behaviour theory, this manuscript examines environmental practices via landscaping initiatives by MNEs and local organisations in Malaysia and Nigeria. Apart from governmental influence that did not discriminate between MNE adopters and non-adopters, and public scrutiny in Nigeria, the rest of the dimensions are important discriminants. For local firms, other than competitive development, the rest are discriminant factors between adopters and non-adopters in Malaysia.
