I investigate the influence of the union structure on firms- environmental technological choice when the unions care for the environmental protection. Specifically, I compare the decentralised with the centralised structure under a Cournot duopoly. I show that the decentralised structure could always provide higher incentives to the firms for the adoption of a better less polluting technology. In addition, the firms prefer the decentralised unionisation than the centralised although the unions prefer the centralised structure. Furthermore, there is an inverse U-shape relation between the firm-s emissions and the size of the market. Finally, the emissions could be less under the centralised case compared to the decentralised for relatively low market-s size.
