Given the increased social and environmental problems in China, this book looks into the social and environmental disclosure practices of socially responsible Chinese listed firms by constructing a stakeholder-driven, three-dimensional, disclosure index. The book contains a three-part study: the first part explores the current status of social and environment disclosure practices. The second part empirically examines the relationship between corporate social and environmental disclosure and various influencing factors (i.e. stakeholders' power and corporate characteristics). The third part empirically examines the link between corporate social responsibility (CSR) reporting (i.e. publishing a CSR report and the quality of the CSR report) and socially responsible reputation.

The book finds that the CSR report provided more stakeholder-relevant social and environmental disclosure than the annual report. It also finds that corporate characteristics such as firm size, profitability and industry classification are all statistically significant factors influencing the social and environmental disclosure of the Chinese firms studied. Shareholders significantly influenced firms' social and environmental disclosure, and creditors significantly influenced firms' disclosure related to their environmental performance. The final part of the study reports that publishing a CSR report and CSR reporting quality had a positive influence on firms' socially responsible reputations and that the CEO/chairman duality negatively influenced firms' socially responsible reputation.

This book will be of interest to those who are keen to learn more about corporate social responsibilities in the context of Chinese firms.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`Social and Environmental Disclosure by Chinese Firms is an essential resource for researchers interested not only in the global spread of disclosure practices, but also the increasing focus on social and environmental responsibility by Chinese firms. A highlight of the book is the authors mixed method approach to unpacking how and why stakeholders and firms' interest in appearing legitimate influence disclosure patterns in China. The book is methodologically rigorous and the authors have provided detailed appendices on the different rating methodologies, guidelines and measurement used in the study that will be valuable to many future researchers on the topic.' - Christopher Marquis, Associate Professor, Harvard Business School, U.S.A.
