ESG communications – Time to re-evaluate your press release service – Companies

Please point me to a more significant and influential trend in corporate communications over the past two decades, in fact; you have to go back to October 2000 when the SEC implemented Regulation FD which only affected publicly traded companies listed on US stock exchanges to find anything even remotely similar to what ESG does to corporate communications and disclosure worldwide. ESG reporting, compliance and communications transcend borders, languages, include private companies and make daily headlines in the US, EU, UK, Hong Kong, Australia, India and Canada to name a few economies where not only regulators but also investors and consumers demand reporting.

An ETF Trends article on NASDAQ.com states: “More than 70 private equity firms have signed an agreement to collect and report data on emissions, workplace fatalities and gender diversity on corporate boards. administration of the companies contained in their portfolios. The move could help advance regulatory talks in Washington, reports Bloomberg. The initial group engaged in data collection was created by the California Public Employees’ Retirement System and Carlyle Group Inc. and has since seen companies such as Oaktree Capital Management, Apollo Global Management and Ares Management Corp. to join. The private equity industry is notorious for cutting costs and increasing corporate debt, and this move could bring transparency and proof that these companies can be profitable while considering their sustainability and their social costs.

“We want our LPs to hold us accountable for our ESG results, and having a common set of metrics helps that,” said Priya Prasad Bowe, ESG manager at Oaktree. The coalition has agreed to standardize how ESG reporting is done, something that currently lacks any type of guidance or regulation from Washington. Among the 70 private equity firms that have joined since the fall of last year are also nearly 40 institutional investors, bringing the group’s assets to $8.7 trillion. With such a large share of private equity, this should give Washington more clout when it comes to ESG reporting and standardization with regulation. Last March, Acting SEC Committee Chair Allison Herren Lee asked for industry input on the disclosures private companies were making regarding their climate data and practices.
