Environmental performance of firms in developing countries is of interest given the lack of resources to properly manage resources and incentivize environmental performance. The empirical literature is mainly focused on developed countries. Thus, this study aims to examine the relationship of financial performance, company size, and share ownership on environmental performance in the context of a developing country. The research sample used includes mining sector companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) in 2012-2016. The results of this study indicate that profitability and firm size have a positive effect while liquidity and share ownership have no significant effect on environmental performance. The measurement of environmental performance in this study is based on the PROPER (Company Performance Rating Assessment Program in Environmental Management) ranking made by the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Indonesia. This research is expected to be able to provide an overview to stakeholders related to the behaviour of mining companies in environmental aspects.
