This study investigates the relationship between financial development and environmental degradation in ASEAN-5 countries namely Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand over the period of 2000 to 2012. The Panel Unit Root test, Panel Cointegration test, Vector Error Correction Model (VECM) Granger Causality, and Fully Modified Ordinary Least Square (FMOLS) are used in this study to examine the short-run and the long-run as well as the causality relationship among the variables. Variables employed in this study are carbon dioxide emissions, foreign direct investment, domestic credit, and market capitalization. The empirical findings show that all the variables are stationary at order 1(I) and there is a cointegration relationship among the variables. The results show that there is a bidirectional causality relationship between the LCO, and FDL Meanwhile, there is a unidirectional causality running from LCO, to DC, MC to FDI, and MC to DC respectively. The strong policy and institution structures are suggested to improve environmental degradation through new technologies and financial development and financial reforms play a role in protecting the environment.
