In recent years, China's economy has entered a stage of rapid development, but the problem of ecological environment is increasingly serious. The causes of haze in most cities in China are the smoke, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides emitted in the process of thermal power enterprises’ production and operation. In order to ensure that the profits can maintain growth in an environmental-friendly way, thermal power enterprises must consider the impact of environmental performance in the process of production, operation and management supervision. According to the framework of the environmental performance evaluation system under the selected GRI standards, this article discusses the construction of the environmental performance evaluation index system of thermal power enterprises, and organizes five representative and comprehensive environmental performance evaluation indicators. In the term of evaluation method, this article adopts the coefficient of variation method to analyze and determine the specific weight of each index. At the same time, the environmental performance scores of enterprises are calculated by combining the normalization of data and the decimal method. We make a descriptive analysis of environmental performance scores and compare the scores of eight selected listed thermal power companies horizontally. Finally, this paper draws research conclusions and puts forward policy recommendations.
