This chapter examines how information disclosure helps companies to improve their environmental performance. It focuses on the potential ability of the information disclosure approach in helping the public, government officials, and corporations to fulfil their individual responsibilities to society and it discusses the overall objectives of the study, as well as the methods and key research questions. It also explores the theoretical aspect of information disclosure strategies. The chapter analyzes a mechanism through which informational disclosure impacts decision-making within corporations, communities, and regulatory agencies. These mechanisms will lead to positive changes in corporate environmental performance and reduce risk to public health and the environment. The chapter also answers research questions through quantitative and qualitative data.

Keywords:   societal goals, research questions, analytical frameworks, public health
