Abstract

This study investigates the influence of board attributes and environmental teams on environmental and sustainability performance. The study uses panel data of a sample of 8,094 Asian and European corporations from 2016 to 2021. The findings reveal that board attributes positively influence sustainability performance, except for frequent meetings and tenure that negatively influence sustainability performance. Further, environmental teams significantly moderate the association between board attributes and sustainability performance, which is more effective in European than Asian corporations. The study offers guidance for board members and policymakers to enforce sustainability disclosure regulations and encourages firms to establish environmental teams and committees to promote sustainability performance.
