The main purpose of this work is to determine the impact of the publication of non-financial reporting on the value of the company.

Main hypothesis: the publication of non-financial reporting GRI has a positive effect on the change in Q-Tobin;

In this paper, the above hypotheses will be tested on the top 200 data on the capitalization of Canadian companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. All companies were classified according to BICS.

Q-Tobin and Return on Assets were taken as the main test indicators responsible for the company's value. The main non-financial indicators were dummies GRI (absence / presence of the report) and the ESG index. The main tested models are Pooled OLS, Panel Fixed Effects and Random Effects models.

In this paper, significant results were obtained, the hypotheses about the positive impact of the publication of a non-financial report on the value of the company were rejected, the hypothesis that the degree and direction of the effect appear differently in different sectors was confirmed.
