VIANA JUNIOR, Dante Baiardo Cavalcante  e  CRISOSTOMO, Vicente Lima. The Effects of Voting Ownership Concentration on Social and Environmental Disclosure: Empirical Evidence from Brazil. Rev. bras. gest. neg. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.4, pp.906-927.  Epub 24-Jan-2020. ISSN 1983-0807.  https://doi.org/10.7819/rbgn.v21i5.4026.

Purpose:

This study aims to analyze the effects of voting ownership concentration on the social and environmental disclosure of Brazilian companies in their Annual Financial Statements.

Design/methodology/approach:

Econometric models were estimated considering a sample of 1,252 annual observations of 252 companies in the period 2010-2014, and the social and environmental disclosure was measured through a lexical analysis performed by counting 75 words and key expressions related to social and environmental practices.

Findings:

Our findings suggest that the social and environmental disclosure of Brazilian companies is positively correlated with their voting ownership concentration. In addition, if the company is listed in the Corporate Sustainability Index or if it is in a potentially aggressive industry with respect to the environment, this also positively contributes to a higher degree of social and environmental disclosure.

Originality/value:

Our study contributes to the literature on social and environmental disclosure and its association with ownership structure by providing evidence in an emerging market characterized by a high concentration of control.

Palavras-chave : Social and Environmental Disclosure; Voting Ownership Concentration; Determinants.
