Teddy Oswari

Abstract


Many researchers have reported that there is a correlation between a companys environmental performances with its financial performance. The role of criteria pertaining to sustainability and environmental orientation could play important roles in credit risk management process.

The result shows improvement in prediction. However, the use of additional criteria will increase cost in the prediction process. Further cost-beneft analysis related to the addition of those criteria would be valuable for credit risk management practices.
