Because of the large scale of listed companies, they are often the main responsible parties for environmental problems. Therefore, from the perspective of compensation incentive, this study made an empirical test on how the pay dispersion within top managers affects corporate environmental responsibility information disclosure. By selecting A-share companies listed in Shanghai or Shenzhen Stock Exchange which published corporate social responsibility reports from 2008 to 2018 as research samples, a multivariate regression analysis model was established. The results showed that there is a significant inverted U-shaped relationship between executive compensation gap and corporate environmental responsibility information disclosure. Further research found that this relationship was only significant in state-owned enterprises.
