Firms have an outsized role in shaping the environmental and social trajectories of our global society. As investors, policy-makers, and the general public increasingly demand transparency to evaluate firms’ impacts, environmental, social, governance (ESG) metrics have emerged as a means to measure firms’ performance and impact. Our goal in this report is to provide a picture of the state of corporate sustainability disclosure among the biggest 300 US firms. In order to do this, we collected data on corporate sustainability disclosure using the framework developed by the World Economic Forum (WEF) organized around the four pillars of Governance, Planet, People, and Prosperity.
