  • Abstract

     

    This study is investigated the influence of corporate disclosure of carbon emissions on information asymmetry. The results found that company emissions and disclosure has a positive impact on information asymmetry, but no relationship between carbon emissions and information asymmetry. This discrepancy may be attributed to the lack of carbon-related regulations on government policy during the study period, which affected investors' response to carbon information asymmetry.
