Notes

Abstract: Environmental issues have become increasingly important to society over the last few decades. Not only have individuals evaluated and changed their habits in an effort to better protect the environment, but they have also pressured corporations to change their poor environmental habits. The purpose of this research is to discover whether companies that go green see an increase in operating profits and the overall value of the firm. The stock prices of thirty-one green-certified companies will be compared to stock prices of thirty-one non-green-certified companies. A statistical paired t-test will be used to analyze whether a significant change in stock value occurred between companies that have gone green and those that have not.
