Yes. In many research studies (one such is cited below), a link has been established between foreign direct investment and pollution havens, or countries with less strict pollution controls. Intuitively, this makes sense: without needing to spend money on costly pollution control or clean-up processes, a firm is able to make greater profits. As a result, firms will prefer to operate/produce in these so-called pollution havens so long as the transport costs for their goods are low enough to allow them to do so.
