“2016 Sustainable Stock Exchange report released” – Corporate Knights – July 19, 2016

On July 19, 2016 Corporate Knights announced the release of the fifth annual edition of its report entitled, “Measuring Sustainability Disclosure:  Ranking the Worlds Stock Exchanges.”

According to the article, the report was “(f)irst commissioned by Aviva Plc in 2012 as part of the Sustainable Stock Exchange Initiative.  (It) tracks corporate disclosure on seven sustainability indicators – payroll, GHGs, energy, water, waste, injury rate and employee turnover. Written by Corporate Knights, it also suggests how such disclosure can be translated into actionable key performance indicators, which might help investors to distinguish companies that are incorporating sustainability into their value creation story.”

Euronext Amsterdam led the list.  The report notes “a general absence of progress among stock exchanges in the lower half of the ranking.”
