Topic: «Board Characteristics and ESG Performance: CEO's Moderating Role»


Abstract: In recent years have been widely investigating the effects of corporate governance characteristics on corporate performance. As the role of non-financial factors in the process of creating company’s value, many researchers focus their attention on the impact of Board of Directors on corporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance and disclosure. While most of researchers include Board size, independence and diversity in their models, there is a growing number of studies focused on the effects of Board human and social capital features on ESG performance. Many studies also consider CEO characteristics, mainly CEO power, as a moderating factor for Board’s impact on corporate performance.

Despite considerable block of researches on the issue, there are several gaps in academic literature. Firstly, although many researchers take into account existence of specialized Board sustainability committees, few of them consider particular characteristics of human capital concentrated in such committees. Secondly, existing studies rarely investigate the effects of strategy and audit committees’ composition on corporate ESG and financial performance. Thirdly, while there are studies considering CEO power as a moderating factor for Board impact on corporate performance, the issue of possible moderating effects of CEO human capital (i.e. education and professional experience) has not been sufficiently investigated.

We aim to fill these gaps, basing on the analysis of the sample of largest Russian public non-financial companies during the period from 2014 to 2020. We focus on the composition of Board committees, considering their “general” characteristics (size and independence), demographic (gander and national diversity) and human capital (education and professional experience) diversity. We also add in our research moderating effects of CEO power, measured by CEO tenure and role in the Board, and CEO human capital.

We believe that our research is relevant from both academic and practical perspectives. We fill several gaps in academic literature. Moreover, we offer new indices to evaluate Board and CEO power and human capital. As from practical point of view, we offer new approach to evaluating corporate governance composition and its effects for corporate sustainability and value creation.

Topic: « Board Structure and Disclosure of Intellectual Capital- An Empirical Study in Knowledge-Based Economies»

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to determine how the composition of the board of directors affects the disclosure of intellectual capital, human capital, structural capital and relational capital.

Bearing in mind that the share of intellectual capital is most pronounced in knowledge-based companies, for the purposes of this research, 40 listed companies from the IT industry, biotechnology and communication technologies were taken into account. The time framework is from 2015 to 2019. During this research, multiple linear regressions based on panel data were utilized.

The results show there is insignificant negative influence board average age, board meetings and CEO duality on intellectual capital disclosure. On the other side, there is positive association between indenpendence of board directors and disclosure information about intellectual capital. Moreover, the obtained results show that random effect is better (Hausman test) and there is no statisticly significant multicolinearity in any type of multiple regression.  

Future research in this area should take into consideration the influence of other elements of corporate governance on the disclosure of information about intellectual capital.
