30 Jan ESG Disclosure
A recent post on WealthManagement.com noted the increase in sustainability disclosure alongside traditional financial disclosure. The movement, encouraged by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board, allows investors a more complete picture of how companies behave as corporate citizens.
Of particular note is the importance of third-party verification. Investors rely on the quality and quantity of disclosure to make informed decisions. Independent analysis of social and sustainable data reassures investors and consumers that companies are aligned with, or at the very least not contrary to, what they value most.
