  • Impact of CO2 emission, per capita income and HDI on Environmental
           Performance Index: empirical evidence from Bangladesh
    • Authors: Karam Pal Narwal, Manoj Kumar Yadav
      Pages: 213 - 225
      Abstract: The Environmental Performance Index (EPI) is a wide ranging dimension of environmental parameters, which need to be assessed with different socioeconomic indicators with a view to inspect environmental sustainability of a growing economy like Bangladesh. The endeavour is given in this study to examine the short run and long run relationship between CO<SUB align="right">2 emission, Per Capita Income, HDI and EPI. Besides, the influence of selected variables on EPI has been ascertained by systematic econometric exercise. It is appeared in the estimation that, there is a cointegrating relationship between CO<SUB align="right">2 emission, Per Capita Income, HDI and EPI of Bangladesh. A long term associationship emerged among the cointegrated variables in further statistical sophistication and found causality is running form the explanatory variables to EPI; meaning that Per Capita Income, Human Development Index and CO<SUB align="right">2 emission has influence on Environmental Performance Index in the long run. Transitory effect analysis revealed no short run relationship between HDI, CO<SUB align="right">2 emission and EPI. Furthermore, multiple regression model signifies the negative association between EPI and Per Capita Income, marginal relationship between CO<SUB align="right">2 emission and EPI, and considerable impact on EPI by Human Development Index.

  • The role of commercial banks in green banking adoption: a Bangladesh
           perspective
    • Authors: Afrin Rifat, Nabila Nisha, Mehree Iqbal, Adisak Suviitawat
      Pages: 226 - 251
      Abstract: Competition in the business of banking is continuously increasing, as a result of which many banks are attempting to retain their customers using different strategies. In this regard, green banking has become an important strategy today for banks, following the influential role of environmental concerns, social responsibility and sustainable ecological balance. However, green banking initiates major changes in the working environment and alters the provision of banking services for the bankers. As such, the objective of this study is to examine the bankers' attitude towards the adoption of green banking initiatives in Bangladesh by using the unified theory of acceptance and the use of a technology (UTAUT) model in commercial banks. This research confirms the significant relationships of performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social competition, environmental concerns and central bank regulations with the behavioural intention and usage behaviour of bankers' perceptions for green banking in Bangladesh. The results overall indicate that bankers are fairly positive in developing general attitudes towards the use of green banking as part of their work activities.

  • Corporate sustainability reporting in the banking sector of Bangladesh: an
           appraisal of the G4 of the Global Reporting Initiative
    • Authors: Md. Nazrul Islam, Mohammad Ashraful Ferdous Chowdhury
      Pages: 252 - 278
      Abstract: Corporate reporting is mostly confined to statutory financial information; however, the additional reporting of voluntary information such as corporate environmental, social and governance information has received much attention in the recent years. With the aim of preparing a comprehensive framework and guidelines for sustainable reporting, G4 of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) was established for all organisations. The present study attempts to evaluate the sustainability disclosure practices in the banking sector of Bangladesh with considering G4 guidelines. The content analysis is employed for assessing the level of disclosures using annual report of 2014 on 30 listed banks. The result reveals that the banking sector is disclosing general information (66%) more than the specific aspects (17%). The overall disclosure level is at a poor level (36%) in terms of the sustainability approach of G4. This study suggests the banking sector should adopt G4 and revise reporting practices in line with GRI.

  • Voluntary agreements and CO2 reduction: an empirical assessment of
           German industries
    • Authors: Anton Parlow, Dennis Hövelmann
      Pages: 279 - 286
      Abstract: Using data on 57 German industries we find that industries participating in voluntary agreements reduce their CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions up to 30% compared to industries not participating in voluntary agreements for the period 1995 to 2010. The success of these agreements can be explained by an initially credible threat of the regulatory agency to impose taxes and the positive publicity created by reducing CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions.

  • COP 21 and the evolution of climate change governance
    • Authors: Anton Parlow, Dennis Hövelmann
      Pages: 287 - 301
      Abstract: Climate change is a global problem that requires collective action. While the international community has been slow in taking effective action in limiting global temperature rise, the 21st Congress of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change may prove to be a milestone in climate negotiations. Past climate deals failed in part due to their attempts to impose mitigation targets on reluctant countries, rather than allowing each country to set its own targets that it believes is achievable. The subsequent Paris Agreement is a post-Kyoto Protocol emissions reduction framework beyond 2020 which aspires to prevent global temperature increase below the 2°C benchmark. Whether countries will heed emission reduction calls and the 2°C global temperature goal is achieved remain to be seen.
      Keywords: Paris Agreement; climate change; COP 21; emissions reduction; climate negotiations; climate governance

  • Environmental quality, international trade and economic growth: the
           case of Malaysia
    • Authors: Ssekibaala Daaki Sadat, Fardous Alom
      Pages: 302 - 326
      Abstract: This paper examines the dynamic relationships between environmental quality, international trade and economic growth using annual data over the period of 1970-2011 for Malaysia. As such, we use GDP per capita and the square of GDP which we refer to as the scale and technique effect respectively, trade openness, energy consumption, composition effect and comparative advantage and CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions is the environmental quality indicator. We employ autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) bounds testing approach to examine long-run association as well as the quantile regression (QREG) approach to examine how the relationship at different conditional distributions of CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions. ARDL results confirm the presence of long-run relationship. The scale effects are positive while technique effects are negative confirming the existence of an inverted U-shaped curve that provides evidence for environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) hypothesis for Malaysia. The turning point is estimated at around RM 27901.54 per capita. QREG results find the effect of CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions significant in the 90th percentile and the turning point is estimated around RM 28189.9 which is slightly higher than the one estimated for ARDL. Trade and composition effects reduce CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions which improves environmental quality while energy and comparative advantage increase CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions worsening environmental quality. This study provides a more comprehensive analysis and the robust findings may provide a basis for policy makers in designing environmentally sustainable trade and economic policies.

  • Climate change mitigation and the cost of equity: evidence from
           Malaysia
    • Authors: Rayenda Khresna Brahmana, Hui Wei You, Mohd Waliuddin Mohd Razali
      Pages: 327 - 337
      Abstract: This study examines the effect of Climate Change Mitigation (CCM) on the cost of equity covering 266 Malaysian public listed companies from the period between 2010 and 2014. We find that CCM has a significant effect on the cost of equity. There are corporate attributes such as a firm's size, leverage, growth and risk effect on the cost of equity. However, only the leverage and risk are significant to the cost of equity. Interestingly, our research also discovered the unexpected direction for the relationship between CCM and the cost of equity, which is a positive relationship. This implies that the higher disclosure of CCM increases the cost of equity for the firms. In short, firms have to exchange to compromise between a lower cost of equity or a better environment. This research carries important findings for the policy makers. Policy makers may find that there is a trade-off between choosing to act responsibly towards the environment and achieving an optimum profit.

    • Authors: Godswill Megwai, Ndey Isatou Njie, Tobias Richards
      Pages: 338 - 357
      Abstract: This paper provides an account of green economy initiatives, exploring national strategies, policy options and effectiveness so far in some developing countries. The concept is recognised as a possible path to achieving global financial stability. The article indicates that different courses of active steps have been initiated which varies from country to country, depending on their level of development, institutional capacity, government framework and resources. This paper identifies green economy national initiatives and policies along with its effectiveness in selected UN member states, namely Croatia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Thailand and Guyana. The '6 Is' policy categories were applied as the assessment framework for evaluating the different policy measures implemented in the selected countries.
