“Our analysis of three data points on board oversight of ESG issues, covered under the Shareholders and Governance stakeholder, has led to two key findings. First, disclosure on these data points is steadily increasing.
Almost a fifth of companies in the Russell 1000 Index report all three ESG governance data points we measure in 2022-up from around a tenth in 2020. Second, the Oil & Gas, Utilities, Energy Equipment & Services, and Chemicals industries have a much larger percentage of companies disclosing on all three ESG governance data points than other industries.”
