With the development of china’s industrialization process, the environmental problemsbecome more serious. The deteriorated trend of environmental conditions explain the failureof the current environmental governance sufficiently, although we have formulated a hugenumber of environmental laws and regulations for the past30years, and establishedenvironmental agencies at all levels from the central government and local government tocarry out the regulation of the environment. One of the important reasons for the failure of theenvironmental governance is that the environmental information is asymmetrical. Theenterprises often make environmental opportunistic behavior because of the asymmetricdistribution of environmental information in the government, enterprise and public. Theenvironmental opportunistic behavior of enterprises will not only makes the environmentalpollution intensified, and failure the environmental enforcement of the government, but alsoreduce the effect of the public environmental monitoring, and failure the environmentalgovernance. The most important problem need to be solved is that how to redress theenvironmental information asymmetry in the environmental governance.Firstly, the article defines the related concepts of the environmental informationasymmetry, and chooses the legal systems to correct it on the basis of analyzing the causesand effects of the environmental information asymmetry. Secondly the article sorts therelevant environmental laws and regulations of the three legal systems of environmentalinformation disclosure, environmental standards and corporate credit rating before analyzingits shortcomings of correcting environmental information asymmetry. Finally, the articlemakes three recommendations for the improvement of laws and regulations of correcting theenvironmental information asymmetry, including improving the system of the environmentalinformation disclosure, standardizing the system of the environmental standards, andstrengthening the system of the business environment credit evaluation.
