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.
