From Communicating CSR to Value Creation
Businesses have been reporting their CSR performance for 15 years now and the practice is becoming more and more sophisticated. According to a study by EY, investors’ concerns to how business perform in non-financial aspects, such as environmental and social aspects, have been escalating. Investors are expecting investees to determine what the most business-relevant environmental, social and economic sustainability risks and opportunities are and explain how they are managed. To address these concerns, a new protocol of called the Integrated Reporting Framework, was introduced recently. With the advent of more integrated reporting, the investment community shall be able to make more informed decision.
