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.
