The existing literature shows that different Chief Executive Officer (CEO) characteristics have an impact on different aspects of the firm such as; firms’ performance (for example; Olsen & Stekelberg, 2016), mergers and acquisitions (for example; Fralich & Papadopoulos, 2018), and firms’ disclosures (for example; Alqatamin et al., 2017). However, very few researches focus on the relationship between CEO characteristics and carbon disclosure. Therefore, the current study will examine the relationship between CEO characteristics, specifically; power, overconfidence, and narcissism, and carbon disclosure hypothesizing that these characteristics influence firms’ likelihood to disclose carbon information. The researchers will test their hypothesis using Stata to analyse firms’ data collected from Russell 3000 index between 2010 and 2018. Considering the agency, stakeholder, and farm theories, a positive impact of these characteristics on carbon disclosure is expected.
