The Influence of Energy Consumption on Company’s Carbon Emissions; Is GCG Capable of Reducing The Carbon Emissions, Research on State-Owned Enterprises in Indonesia (Published)

The escalating global temperature resulting from climate change demands urgent attention. Carbon gas pollution, a leading contributor to climate change, induces a greenhouse gas effect. This study aims to assess the influence of Energy Consumption on Carbon Emissions generated by companies. Additionally, it explores the relationships between Carbon Emissions and other variables, including Good Corporate Governance (GCG) practices, Profitability, Size, and Debt Ratios of companies, utilizing an analytical framework model for regression analysis. The research relies on data extracted from annual and sustainability reports of 31 State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) in Indonesia spanning the years 2018 to 2022. The findings underscore that GCG Practices, Debt Ratios, Size, and Energy Consumption exert a direct impact on environmental performance. In contrast, Profitability does not demonstrate a direct influence on the magnitude of Carbon Emissions produced. The empirical evidence indicates uncertainty in the results when compared with other studies examining factors influencing company performance.

Effect of Bank Specific Factors on Bank Loan Performance in Nepal (Published)

This study examines the effect of bank specific factors on loan performance of commercial banks in Nepal. Bank size, capital, deposit, liquidity ratio and lending interest rate are taken as bank specific factors. The study has conducted correlation and regression analysis using panel data of twenty four commercial banks during the period of 1996 -2017. The empirical results show that bank size, capital and deposit have positive impact on bank lending. Hence, commercial bank willing to increase lending should increase its capital, even more than regulatory standard. Further banks willing to lend more should expand their total assets and deposit. Liquidity ratio and interest rate have negative impact on bank lending. Thus, commercial banks willing to increase bank lending, should be careful in maintaining minimum liquidity requirement and interest rate fluctuation. Central bank willing to increase bank lending to productive sector should encourage banks to decline their lending interest rate.

Keywords: Bank Lending, Capital, Deposit, Interest Rate, Liquidity Ratio, Regression, Size
