Identifying this gap in the literature this paper aims to bring some clarification on the issue, by performing an exploratory investigation of Romanian companies. As findings indicate, despite the incipient stages of public disclosure of environmental information, Romanian enterprises are ready to catch up with Western practices. (Less)
