Abstract
With the economic globalization and the rapid development of enterprises, issues related to petroleum leakage, food safety and environmental pollution have become more and more severe, directly affecting human living environment, social harmony and the development of enterprises. At the same time, many listed companies begin to focus on releasing reports with respect to social responsibility, sustainable progress and environmental protection. Using the social responsibility report of Petro China Co. Ltd. as a case, this paper analyzes the current situation of social responsibility information disclosure of China's petroleum enterprises and existing problems in order to provide suggestions for improving the social responsibility information disclosure quality of petroleum enterprises.
