Global production is increasingly organised by multinational enterprises (MNEs) and takes place in both trade and investment centred networks and Global Value Chains (GVC). MNEs may have an important, multifaceted role in the green transformation, including both positive and negative effects. On the one hand, being large, MNEs may be slow to change ingrained routines and hence they may be stuck in resource intensive and high-pollution modes of production and operation.
