Sustainability Practices 2020


January 2021 | Research Report

This edition of Sustainability Practices summarizes the key findings from the latest analysis of sustainability reporting. The Conference Board analyzed sustainability disclosure data on 92 environmental and social practices tracked by Bloomberg for more than 6,000 companies across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. The analysis reveals some notable increases compared to last year, such as in disclosure of climate-related business risks and water stress exposure. The representation of women on corporate boards has also increased, as has the number of companies linking executive compensation to sustainability metrics. Explore our in-depth analysis and insights on these and other developing trends.
