Board gender diversity, environmental committee and greenhouse gas voluntary disclosures

Board gender diversity, environmental committee and greenhouse gas voluntary disclosures
Board gender diversity, environmental committee and greenhouse gas voluntary disclosures
We highlight the interrelations between board gender diversity, environmental committees and greenhouse gas (GHC) voluntary disclosures on a sample of 215 firms listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Evidence from the study indicates significantly positive association gender diversity. Our findings suggests that a more diverse board can serve a diverse range of stakeholder demands and hence legitimise its green credentials and gain trust from a broad range of stakeholders. These findings have implications for policy formulation for firms.

Abstract

We highlight the interrelations between board gender diversity, environmental committees and greenhouse gas (GHC) voluntary disclosures on a sample of 215 firms listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Evidence from the study indicates significantly positive association gender diversity. Our findings suggests that a more diverse board can serve a diverse range of stakeholder demands and hence legitimise its green credentials and gain trust from a broad range of stakeholders. These findings have implications for policy formulation for firms.
