ESG reporting standard setters urged to agree ‘unified agenda’

first_imgA group of global investor organisations has urged listed companies and ESG reporting standard setters to do more to agree an approach to the treatment and inclusion of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) information in company disclosure and reporting.“It is important to state clearly that the group believes a workable ‘solution’ can be achieved with the existing data providers and standard setters,” it said in a discussion paper published yesterday.It said it supported improving coordination of existing reporting frameworks rather than creating new ones but that it was “incumbent on the standard-setting organisations to present a coherent vision of how these standards can and should fit together”.The group – the Global Investor Organisations Committee – was responding to a request for a more unified view from investors on corporate ESG reporting. According to the discussion paper’s authors – Kris Douma of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and George Dallas of the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN) – the request emerged from a 2016 meeting of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and formed the basis for the establishment of the group. The Global Investor Organisations Committee is made up of the CFA Institute, ICGN, PRI, and four other “investor organisations”.“The heterogeneity of ESG data users – investors, stakeholders and companies – will remain and is not inherently negative”Setting out the group’s preliminary thinking in response to that request, the group’s discussion paper noted there was no single set of metrics or single framework that would satisfy all users of ESG data.“The heterogeneity of ESG data users – investors, stakeholders and companies – will remain and is not inherently negative,” wrote Douma and Dallas.At the same time, the investor organisations considered it should be possible to serve users’ different needs and “still come to a more unified agenda”.Making sense of different frameworksThe group acknowledged challenges for companies in reporting ESG information, but encouraged them to identify and disclose material ESG issues and relevant “Key Performance Indicators” as part of their annual reports.But it would also be beneficial for companies to disclose standardised ESG information at a basic level to complement more customised ESG reporting, the discussion paper said.Investors would also benefit from members of the Corporate Reporting Dialogue “proactively articulating how its different bodies fit together”, wrote Douma and Dallas.They should explain what the complementarities were between them but also what the differences or conflicts were, they suggested. The Corporate Reporting Dialogue is a forum bringing together several organisations that set standards or frameworks for corporate ESG reporting; members include the Global Reporting Initiative, Climate Disclosure Standards Board, the International Organisation for Standardisation and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board.According to the Douma and Dallas-authored discussion paper, it was a report from the chair of the Corporate Reporting Dialogue at the 2016 IIRC meeting that drew attention to investors’ fragmented view on corporate ESG reporting as an important issue.The discussion paper can be found here.The full list of bodies forming the Global Investor Organisations Committee: Ceres, CFA Institute, Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (GSIA), International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN), Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), and the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP-FI).The full list of bodies forming the Corporate Reporting Dialogue: CDP, Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB), Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board.last_img read more

O’Brien eyeing Leopardstown prizes

first_img Jim Bolger’s Theophilus and the Jessica Harrington-trained Weather Watch top the weights for the race with Charles O’Brien’s Hurricane Sky, winner of two of his last three starts, another key contender. O’Brien saddles Cenotaph in the opening Leopardstown Summer Membership Handicap while Lieutenant General tries to get off the mark at the fourth attempt in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Maiden. He was last seen when finishing third in the Group Three Tyros Stakes at this track two weeks ago. The Crewmaster represents the Ballydoyle team in the Bulmers Live At Leopardstown Maiden after bagging a fine second on his racecourse bow at the Galway Festival last week. O’Brien unleashes two newcomers in the Live At Leopardstown Maiden with Prospector a particularly eyecatching contender as a $1.4 million half-brother to Mastercraftsman. Hallmark also runs for the Coolmore team while Dermot Weld runs Chinese Light, a full sister to Group One winner Chinese White who has been beaten by the likes of Group One winners Legatissimo and Diamondsandrubies in the past. Liberty’s Gift ended a barren spell at Wexford recently and Paul Flynn gets her out again in an attempt to strike while the iron is hot in the ‘Stunning’ Apprentice Handicap. Ivanovich Gorbatov is sure to have his supporters as he turns out in the Racecourse Of The Year Handicap at Leopardstown on Thursday evening. Aidan O’Brien’s charge will be making his handicap bow in the one-mile-seven-furlong heat, but given he is entered for the Irish St Leger Trial later this month, connections are surely expecting more from this Montjeu colt in due course. Third on his only juvenile start, Ivanovich Gorbatov won a Navan maiden in May and with three of those in behind having gone on to win themselves, the form has a pleasing look about it. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

The Latest: Players with Spanish club return after protest

first_img Associated Press Teams could head to Florida as early as June 1 for training camps. After such a long layoff, Walkes indicated it would likely take at least a month to get in proper playing shape to start up again.___The Austrian soccer league says it is investigating first-place club LASK Linz for breaking rules on training during the coronavirus pandemic.Clubs in Austria are only supposed to hold training for small groups of players under social distancing regulations before full training begins Friday.But the league says it was sent multiple videos showing “a regular team training session” which supposedly took place “recently.” LASK has been charged with a violation of fair-play principles. The team could be fined or have points deducted. Katerina Stefanidi of Greece, Katie Nageotte of the United States and Alysha Newman of Canada will participate in the event but won’t be competing in their backyards because they don’t have the equipment at home. They will instead be at nearby training facilities.The top men’s pole vaulters competed in the Ultimate Garden Clash at their homes in early May. Mondo Duplantis and Renaud Lavillenie shared the victory with more than 250,000 people watching a live stream.The winner on Saturday will be the vaulter who clears the bar at 4 meters the most times in 30 minutes.___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 Restrictions on travel and professional sports also forced Cricket Ireland to postpone hosting Pakistan in two T20s on July 12 and 14.The Netherlands legs of both tours by New Zealand and Pakistan had already been curtailed last month after the Dutch government banned all big sports events until Sept. 1.Pakistan is still scheduled to tour England for three tests and three T20s from July 30 to Sept. 2.Cricket Ireland says it is talking with England officials about possibly rescheduling their three ODIs in September in England.___ The Latest: Players with Spanish club return after protest Those are among several cost-cutting moves announced by the conference because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.The Division I conference will reduce qualifiers to four for men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, men’s and women’s tennis, softball and baseball.Conference commissioner Jim Schaus said league presidents had approved a cost-savings plan for the 2020-21 academic year. Schaus said staff at the conference office will have reduced travel going forward and their salaries will be frozen.___Akron is dropping men’s golf and cross country and women’s tennis in cost-cutting moves due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But Walkes said there are a number of issues that must be addressed before such a plan could be approved.“The safety of everyone is first and foremost,” he said on a video conference call with Atlanta media. Details of the plan are still under consideration, but the league’s 26 teams and limited staff would likely be sheltered in a resort with games played without fans at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World. The league suspended play on March 12 after teams had played just two games.Meza said “the logistics of it will be challenging.”Walkes said he’s also concerned about the mental aspect of players being asked to essentially quarantine in one location — especially if it means being without families and friends for potentially several months. The school said the reduction will take effect at the end of the 2019-20 academic year. Akron will now have seven men’s sports and 10 women’s sports. The school will remain a member of the Mid-American Conference, which announced changes to several conference championships earlier this week.“These decisions are very difficult but they are important and necessary at this time,” athletic director Larry Williams said. “This action aligns us with our Mid-American Conference peers in the total number of sports and is part of the ongoing effort to redesign the University to ensure that UA continues to invest in high-demand, high-quality academic programs.”In a news release, the school said it considered factors including program cost, facilities, community impact and future funding.___Atlanta United players Anton Walkes and Fernando Meza say they’re open to the idea of resuming Major League Soccer with all teams playing in the Orlando, Florida, area.
