We are pleased to share our second Ethical Standards Report.
This research is drawn from the results of our Ethical Partners Opportunity and Risk Assessment (EPORA) process and we believe it provides an important “snapshot” of the state of ESG reporting and disclosure across 216 ASX companies particularly in relation to several important and topical themes.
It also discusses why these topics are so important to corporates and investors including the improvements, gaps and nuances we found, and the next steps in corporate reporting standards that we believe the ASX needs to embrace.
These are also the areas that Ethical Partners will continue to engage on with companies and advocate for improvement across the ASX.

Ethical Partners are pleased to see Australia take the next steps to implement mandatory climate reporting with the release of draft climate standards, which we provided feedback on.
Ethical Partners have continuously called for the provision of high quality, comparable data on company’s climate governance and carbon metrics, which we believe is imperative for investors to fulfil the potential of responsible investment.
Ethical Partners have been proud to have been active supporters of the TNFD Forum over the past few years, and to provide regular feedback on the development of the official TNFD recommendations, which were launched in December, as well as to be active members of the RIAA Natural Capital Working Group.
