Organizational culture is one of the resources used by companies to obtain competitive advantage and organizational sustainability, whether by financial, social or environmental efficiency (Chatman & O’Reilly, 2016; Dyck et al., 2019). Another resource that is being encouraged to try and achieve sustainability is Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), which can be facilitated or inhibited by organizational culture (Leandro & Rebelo, 2011; Shanak et al., 2020). Therefore, this study aims to analyze the relationship of organizational culture and CSR practices on environmental performance in companies listed on [B]³ (Brasil, Bolsa, Balcão), São Paulo’s stock exchange. The results indicated that there are no direct relations between organizational culture, environmental performance and the mediating effect; however, at the significance level of 10%, companies with high polluting potential become more harmful to the environment when there is a predominance of market and hierarchical culture.
