Abstract: In recent years, the government of China has taken many CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) actions with the aim to improve CSR disclosure behavior in China. Based on content analysis, this study attempts to analyze CSR disclosure practices of mainland Chinese banks against economic, social, and environmental aspects during the period 2008-2012 listed on the A shares of the SSE (Shanghai Stock Exchange). Moreover, this paper identifies any conformance/non-conformance aspects of the banks in relation to SSE requirements. Political economy theory and legitimacy theory are used to describe the phenomenon of CSR disclosure in China. Since the SSE issued the guidelines and notice to all listed companies in May 2008, 2008 is chosen as the starting point for comparison and the trends are observed for five consecutive years to 2012. In addition, content analysis is used to investigate the sampled banks' level of adherence to the SSE requirements. Paragragh Headings: 1. Introduction 1.1. Background 1.2.
