dc.description.abstract

This thesis examines the influence of board diversity on the level of environmental disclosure of Malaysia listed companies from 2014 to 2016. Data is hand-collected from the published reports of companies from environmentally-sensitive industry sectors. Using stratified random sampling approach, 150 companies are selected for each period. Panel data analysis is employed. There is a statistically significant increase in environmental disclosure level. Younger and foreign directors are the negative predictors of the environmental disclosure.
