Environment, Social and Governance considerations (ESG) has become a top priority on investors’ and corporates’ agendas. Boards and executives increasingly see ESG as imperative to long-term value creation and the need to meet investor demand for comparable ESG measurements and disclosures, in a way that drives value for an organization.

Commissioned by the World Economic Forum’s International Business Council (IBC), the white paper Measuring Stakeholder Capitalism - Towards common metrics and consistent reporting of sustainable value creation outlines a recommended set of 21 core metrics and 34 expanded metrics to further the road towards a global harmonized reporting system.

Developed in collaboration with Bank of America, KPMG and other Big Four organizations, the initiative reflects a key building block of disclosure standards: a broader instrument built on metrics that protect the integrity of the global capital markets by helping to enable companies to disclose comparable information that will aid investors in making long-term decisions that will ultimately support sustainable enterprise value creation.
