Keeping you in-the-know on environmental, social and governance developments

NYSE has issued their Best Practices for Sustainability Reporting – a “voluntary set of guidelines for companies; these are not listing standards, regulations or requirements. They are intended to help you make further progress, or even get started, on your ESG journey.”

I highly recommend this document – two thumbs up! It provides practical and concise guidance on what NYSE sees as the eight steps of a company’s ESG journey:

  • Identifying the risk approach for the company
  • Identifying stakeholders and evaluating engagement
  • Assessing materiality
  • Establishing governance
  • Integrating ESG into business strategy
  • Telling your story
  • Reporting frameworks and standards
  • ESG research and ratings

Further, NYSE is also surveying listed companies on climate disclosures to “inform us on the areas of agreement and divergence within the NYSE-listed company community.” Results of the survey will be made available to listed companies who participate in the survey, but will not be made public.
