Spanish multinational enterprises MNEs are a prime example of how companies benefit from globalization and expand their activities worldwide through foreign direct investment. This paper has a legal perspective, focusing on the environmental performance of Spanish MNEs in Latin America and their corporate social responsibility CSR through the adoption of codes of conduct. As a result of a set of factors, Spanish MNEs have implemented voluntary CSR initiatives, strategies and standards in their day-to-day operations.
