Instead, the companies should protect the external environment, so many<br />companies need to improve the sustainability of their companies to be better through corporate environmental disclosure. This study aims to examine and analyze the effect of environmental performance, feminism in commissioners, female audit committees, and corporate visibility towards corporate environmental disclosure, controlled by profitability and liquidity. One hundred samples were obtained from the mining companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange from 2015 to 2019 and analyzed using the multiple linear regression method. This study proved that female audit committees could positively influence corporate environmental disclosure. On the other hand, this study found that environmental performance, feminism in commissioners, and corporate visibility couldn't affect corporate environmental disclosure. This result of the study can be used by the company's management to help companies provide more thorough supervision of decisions made by management related to social responsibility activities carried out by the female audit committee and monitor the quality of environmental disclosure more effectively. For investors, the results of this study are expected to provide information to investors about the importance of female audit committee members' existence in supporting the community's welfare.</span> </p> 2023-06-23T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Kenny Ardillah Interpreting the Concept of Debt Based on Indonesian Patron-Client Perspective 2023-05-26T04:01:50+00:00 Driana Leniwati Aviani Widyastuti Rafli Sholana Sri Wahjuni Latifah Fahmi Dwi Mawardi <p>This study aims to interpret the concept of debt based on social phenomenon on Patron Client’s fishermen working-relationship in Pantai Sungai Bakau, Serayu, East Kalimantan.

Theory suggests that for uncertainty, the company needs to have cash holding, but on the other hand, it needs to pay dividends. Therefore, this research aims to prove the relationship between factors that affect firm value with cash holding and dividend policy as mediation. We conduct this research on the manufacturing company from 2015 to 2021 registered on Indonesia Stock Exchange. Using the purposive sampling method, 82 company was chosen and 574 data was studied. To test our hypotheses, we use SmartPLS. The results proved that cash holding can influence firm value, while dividend policy cannot. For the indirect effect, we found that profitability and net working capital indirectly affect firm value through cash holding. We explain the theory and practical implications and describe our study’s limitations. For future research, we suggest differentiating firm value before and during a financial crisis, and the industry sector that has the worst, moderate, and light impact from the crisis.</p> 2022-12-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Eka Yudhyani, Umi Kulsum, Faizal Reza, Astrid Napita Sitorus, Nanda Wahyu Indah Kirana Cash Holdings, Dividend Payout, and Corporate Value: The Role of Institutional Investors 2023-06-21T10:18:26+00:00 Hendra Wijaya <p><span class="fontstyle0">This study examines the relationship between cash holdings and dividend payout on corporate value.
