Flash Report: 82% of the S&P 500 Companies Published Corporate Sustainability Reports in 2016

Summary: 

Highlights from G&A Institute: 

G&A Institute has analyzed the index company components' sustainability reporting activities for the past six years.   Our research over the last six years shows that reporting on the corporate sustainability including environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) continues to be a consistent, reliable norm for the largest companies in US capital markets.   

Sustainability reporting rose dramatically from just 20% of the companies reporting in 2011 to 72% just three years later in 2013.  From 2013 to 2016, the frequency of reporting has maintained with slight increases each year, now up to 82% in 2016, the latest year of our study released.

Over the last few years, this consistent volume of corporate reporting underscores the importance and staying power of considering ESG issues when setting corporate strategies, managing resources and communicating to important stakeholders such as customers, employees and shareholders.
