Governance and Sustainability
The shifting corporate governance landscape in the Americas
We focus on corporate governance in the Americas and look to establish if there is a relationship between governance scores, company resilience and financial performance.
Over the past five years, we have seen Governance Scores increase by 14% globally, and companies in the Americas increase by 19%.
With Environmental and Social performance/activity both hinging on strong Governance, it’s a positive trend that lends itself to a sense of optimism for stakeholders vying for a more sustainable future.
In this report we look at the trends in governance data and the financial performance of companies performing well on governance metrics. The report includes:
- Analysis of Governance Scores, CSR Sustainability Reporting and CSR Sustainability Scores
