Stock market disclosure requirements as a source of corporate normativity


Project Description

Stock exchanges are influential shapers of company disclosure expectations with respect to environmental risks but little is known about how stock exchanges view this role nor what risks might be inherent in the distribution of industry listings on particular stock exchanges. This PhD will address this subject area by: (1) identifying which sectors dominate what stock exchanges; (2) understanding the environmental risks arising from the distribution of industries across different stock markets; and (3) exploring how these findings might influence environmental risk disclosure requirements in the future (drawing from experiences of existing disclosure requirements).
