Summary: 

G&A Institute Research Highlights: 
G&A Institute has analyzed index companies’ sustainability reporting activities since 2011. Our research over the past eight years shows that corporate reporting on sustainability -- including environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance and achievements -- continues to be a consistent and reliable for the largest and most influential companies in the US capital markets.

“Sustainability reporting” rose dramatically from 2011, when roughly 20% of companies published reports, to 72% just three years later in 2013. From 2013 to 2017, the frequency of reporting increased each year, reaching 85% in 2017 and now inching up to 86% of companies reporting in 2018.

This enhanced and expanded corporate disclosure and structured reporting on the part of the largest market cap companies underscores the importance and value of considering corporate ESG issues when planning growth strategies, allocating capital, managing resources and communicating results to stakeholders such as customers, employees, and shareholders.
