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

Over on last week, Meredith wrote about ISS announcing the results of its 2023 benchmark policy survey. ISS received responses from 239 investors and 216 non-investors, including public companies, board members and their advisors.

“The results summary details a number of key findings on E&S matters. One question sought to address whether investors would give companies a pass for reducing their transparency on E&S topics in light of recent ESG backlash. Investors overwhelmingly (85%) responded that the risk of reduced transparency is greater than the risk of political backlash and that they would not tolerate reduced disclosure, even on politically sensitive topics. 49% of non-investor respondents agreed!”

Not only are investors likely to respond negatively to such a move, but others – such as customers, regulators, ratings organizations, NGOs and probably the media – won’t be too happy either. It’s best to stay on course in improving your ESG reporting.
