The study seeks to understand how management practices of technological innovation that take social and environmental responsibility into account influence the internationalisation process of companies. The case study approach was chosen as our research method. The data were obtained by means of semi-structured interviews held at a Brazilian firm operating in the machinery and equipment sector. We sought to identify the main technological management practices that showed commitment to sustainable development. The results suggest that the company's international success and high degree of competitiveness are based on its offering innovative technology solutions that
show a commitment to the environment. The study identifies important elements to an emerging knowledge area in the field of management sciences.
