Abstract
Information disclosure is one of the important mechanisms for the effective operation of the capital market, among which environmental information disclosure has an important impact on the principal-agent cost. This paper takes a-share listed companies in all heavy polluting industries in Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges as research samples, and empirically tests the logic of the effect of environmental information disclosure on the principal-agent cost. The results show that there is a significant negative correlation between environmental information disclosure and principal-agent cost. In addition, executive gender has a positive moderating effect on the negative correlation between environmental information disclosure and principal-agent cost, indicating that the disclosure of environmental information by enterprises with female chairmen is more conducive to reducing principal-agent cost.
