Global CSR Disclosure
The importance of corporate social responsibility reporting in today’s financial markets is rising. There has been an increase in the number of social reporting requirements driven by regulatory bodies and stock exchanges around the world that have played a key role in advancing the field of social reporting. The following chart summarizes recent requirements by governments and stock exchanges related to CSR disclosure, as well as developments with emerging socially responsible indices.
For more comprehensive descriptions of these various initiatives as well as a brief list of some of the most important developments we see materializing in the near future, please see the IRI’s working paper on this subject.
