Solability – “Corporate Sustainability Korea – 2013” – February 7, 2013

On February 7, 2013 Solability published a report entitled, “Corporate Sustainability Korea – 2013.”

According to the press release distributed on February 7, 2013 by Solabillity, “The results of the 6th annual Korean ESG review show that management awareness for sustainability management has been further increasing, accelerated strongly since the financial crises of 2008/2009. However, certain areas remain challenging, with little improvement made over recent years.”  The report focuses on three areas:  corporate governance, energy and strategic sustainability.  “Analysis of the financial performance also shows that sustainable management capabilities continue to return better financial results. Shares of sustainable companies also yield higher returns: the SolA50, an index of Korea’s 50 most sustainable companies, continues to outperform the market and SRI benchmarks for a 5th consecutive year by considerable margins.”
