Abstract

This study aims to determine the effect of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) on systematic and total risk in public companies in Indonesia. This research was based on the asymmetric information theory and stakeholder theory. The number of observations used in this study were 62 companies listed on the IDX and had Refinitiv ESG scores during 2017-2021. This study used a multiple linear regression model to determine the effect of ESG score on systematic risk and total risk. Based on the results, it can be concluded that ESG did not have any significant effect on systematic risk. On the other hand, ESG could decrease the total risk for the company.
