Three things this week: GE's summary report, Bloomberg's gender equality index, and the UK's ESG reporting leadership Featured

  1. GE just released its first integrated summary report, joining PepsiCO, Prudential Financial, Clorox Company and others in reporting past performance along with future ESG risks and opportunities.

    Jeff Immelt, Chairman and CEO, says their report responds to the problem that “public company reporting is so complicated that what matters to investors can get lost.”  Go here to learn about ESG reporting benchmarking and analytics to get started  or improve on your reporting.

  2. Bloomberg launches the first Gender Equality Index for the Financial Services Sector (BFGEI), providing investors and organizations with standardized aggregate data across company gender statistics; employee policies; gender-conscious product offerings; and external community support and engagement. Go here for more, and how to submit information for next year’s Index.  This email address is being protected from spambots.

  3. Speaking of integrated reporting, the UK government took another step in ESG reporting leadership, by releasing an integrated reporting guidance for public sector organizations, setting out GHGs (Scope 1, 2, and 3), waste, water, and procurement, as minimum requirements to be included in each organization’s annual report.  Rather than accepting a stand alone CSR report as sufficient, the guidance states that organizations should “report how sustainability is embedded within corporate decision making and performance”.
