COMPARATIVE STUDY OF SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING ON THE BANKING INDUSTRY IN SEVERAL COUNTRIES
The level of credit risk or credit quality, which can be measured by the ratio of Non-Performing Loans (NPL), can
be seen as a form of representation in companies, particularly in the banking sector. The purpose of this study
is to determine the impact of Sustainability Report disclosure, specifically in each dimension of Economic,
Environmental, and Social Disclosure, on the credit risk level of each banking company in Indonesia, Singapore,
and Malaysia, as measured by the NPL ratio. This study collected 129 samples from banking sector companies
in Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia over a three-year period, from 2018 to 2020, using the purposive sampling
method. Multiple Linear Regression was also utilized in this study to evaluate and determine the impact of each
component of the Sustainability Report disclosure on the NPL ratio, as well as other control variables. According
to the study's findings, the overall disclosure of the Sustainability Report has a significant influence on the NPL
ratio in Indonesian and Singaporean banking sector companies, but not in Malaysian companies. Although
partially, Economic Disclosure has a negative and significant impact on NPL in Singapore, whereas Environmental
Disclosure only has an impact on the NPL ratio in Malaysia, and the final factor is the impact of Social Disclosure,
which has a negative and significant impact on NPL in Indonesia.
