NEW REPORT ON INTEGRATED REPORTING (APRIL 29): Every company in the S&P 500 except one reports some form of sustainability disclosure, but fewer quantify those disclosures in bottom line impacts, according to the new report we issued today with funding from the IRRC Institute (IRRCI). The report is the first to comprehensively benchmark the status of integrated reporting in the United States.
A webinar to review the findings and respond to questions about the report, Integrated Financial and Sustainability Reporting in the United States, will be held on Friday, May 3, 2013, at 2 PM ET. Register here:
The 285-page report analyzes sustainability disclosures on a sector-by-sector basis, and examined a total of 56,000 individual data points, across both mandated SEC filings and voluntary sustainability reports issued in 2012. It looks at industry trends and regulatory developments, presenting the results of a months-long analysis that looks at the extent to which companies are combining traditional financial reporting with quantifiable environmental and social metrics in their securities filings and sustainability reports.
