The PRI Network asked Etica Sgr to adopt an initiative aimed at supporting worldwide stock exchanges for the definition of guidelines for publishing ESG information by the end of 2016 with the aim of a greater transparency of uniformity.
While many companies have begun to report on ESG issues, this information is often not enough to allow investors to make safe investment choices. For this reason, the creation of ESG reporting guidelines for companies is an important step to take, both for highlighting the importance of such information, and for investors and the companies themselves.
This initiative was started for this reason and consists in signing a letter to send to world stock exchanges in order to encourage them to sponsor the Model Reporting Guidance, guidelines published this year in September by the UN Sustainable Stock Exchange, among the companies that are starting their ESG reporting programme.
The letter underlines the importance of the stock exchanges in promoting financial reporting and corporate governance standards. The role of the Stock Exchange is fundamental in integrating social and environmental issues in corporate documents to create capital markets that are increasingly transparent and efficient able to create long-term value.
Etica Sgr participated in the initiative, sending its adhesion.
