Abstract:

Despite the promotion of the information disclosure scheme by Chinese government, the actual influence of the information disclosure remains unclear. Among the disclosed information, environmental information is one of those drawing most public. Most research regarding environmental information disclosure focuses on the main body who disclose information, such as the government and the corporations. Limited research has examined in the impact mechanism of environmental information on public preferences for public environmental goods. In addition, the practical strategies towards the influences of the environmental information are missing out in research.
