Abstract

This study aims to examine the characteristics of the company consisting of leverage, profitability, company size, and company age to the extent of disclosure of sustainability report. There are 48 companies engaged in manufacturing of chemical and animal feed sub-sectors in 2012-2017 as samples. These samples were selected using the purposive sampling method. Then the data are analyzed using multiple regression methods. The results of the study show that company characteristics that are proxied by leverage, profitability, company size, and company age do not affect the extent of disclosure of sustainability report
