In a press release published on the news page of the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) internet site on July 2, 2015 the WFE publicized the results of a recent survey:
“Thirty nine percent of respondents to the global exchanges survey (22 out of 56) stated they had received ESG-related queries from investors, of which 10 said that such inquiries are on the increase.
The finding shows how ‘ESG’ (Environment, Social and Corporate Governance) concerns are becoming widespread among global capital market participants. Exchanges provide an important informational and regulatory nexus on ESG issues between companies and the capital markets which serve their financing needs.”
