About the Program
Short-term profits at the expense of long-term sustainability is one of the main drivers of the recession, the occupy Wall Street movement, and the subject of political debate on Capitol Hill. Expanded corporate performance measures can put an end to this myopic approach to profit returns. Companies have begun to include Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) measures in their reports. Bloomberg terminals report: carbon emissions/revenue ratio, employee accident leave, male and female board ratio, signatory status to the UN Global Compact, Global Reporting Initiative grade, and political donations.
Consumers and stakeholders drive demand for non-financial reporting metrics. Through social pressure, most large mainstream multinational companies in Europe disclose ESG information and even still, European investors, analysts, NGOs, and consumers are demanding more information.
