We examine the impact of social and environmental disclosures (SEDs) on information asymmetry. Employing data from 145 banks from 2005 to 2021 across 19 European (EU) countries. Our findings reveal that both SEDs reduce information asymmetry by increasing market liquidity. We further find that the observed impact of such disclosures is more pronounced for banks operating in countries that pay high attention to human development.
