oa Meditari : Research Journal of the School of Accounting Sciences - Financial performance of environmentally responsible South African listed companies

 

Abstract

The problem investigated is whether there is a positive relationship between the environmental responsibility and the financial performance of South African listed companies. The financial performance measures ROE, ROA, ROC and EVA were individually correlated with the environmental reporting percentages (i.e. the measure for environmental responsibility) for all the companies. Based on the results of the correlation analyses, it is concluded that there is a positive relationship between the environmental responsibility and the financial performance of South African listed companies; i.e. the higher the level of environmental responsibility of a company, the better its financial performance.
