This Is Why More Companies Aren’t Disclosing Their Environmental Strategies

HSBC today said that 53 percent of companies now have an environmental strategy in place, but only 43 percent actively disclose it. Why is that number so low?

More Research Findings

According to HSBC’s research of about 1,000 companies and institutional investors globally:

  • 56 percent of investors describe companies’ current disclosure levels of environmental strategies as “highly inadequate”
  • Asia has the largest increase in both environmental strategy disclosure and level of climate-related disclosure
  • Growing investor appetite for low carbon investments is strongest in Europe (97 percent)
