Valuing Corporate Responsibility:How Do Investors Really Use Corporate Responsibility Information?
Over 500 large investment institutions (asset managers and pension funds) have signed the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment, and similar numbers support the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). It can now be plausibly argued that 'responsible investment' has become mainstream. This book aims (1) to provide investors with the basic skills that they need to make sense of the information they receive, now and in the future, on companies/ corporate responsibility performance; (2) to provide companies with practical suggestions on how they can make their reporting more useful for investors. Valuing Corporate Responsibility will explain what responsible investment looks like in practice and, from this analysis, explain what sort of corporate responsibility information investors are interested in and how this information might be used.
