Abstract

This research addresses the connection between gender diversity, environmental risk ratings, and financial performance using market capitalizations within Fortune 100 companies. The primary problem to be investigated is if and how the presence of a female executive influences environmental risk ratings in these leading corporations. It seeks to determine whether the higher environmental risk ratings directly correlates with a measurable impact on the financial performance of top-performing companies. It is relevant given the recent surge in sustainability reporting among U.S. publicly traded companies. This is significant because understanding and bringing attention to the relationship between gender diversity and sustainability practices and therefore, financial performance, can help corporations reshape their organizational strategies.
