Abstract
With the continuous advancement of ecological civilization construction, enterprises are increasingly inclined to transmit good information on environmental management to external stakeholders through environmental disclosure, using media to shape the green image and establish corporate reputation. This study analyzes the panel data of 148 listed companies in China’s A-share heavy polluting industry as a research sample from 2012 to 2016, empirically tests the impact of corporate environmental performance on environmental disclosure, and analyzes the role of media in these two. The results reveal that there is a positive correlation between environmental disclosure and environmental performance of listed companies in heavy polluting industries. What’s more significant, media attention has a positive adjustment effect.
