Country Report

 CSR - Reporting and disclosure

By disclosing social, environmental and governance information, enterprises often find that they can better identify and manage issues that influence their business success.

 

Good disclosure of non-financial information enables investors to contribute to a more efficient allocation of capital and better achieve longer-term investment goals.
It can also help to make enterprises more accountable and contribute to higher levels of citizen trust in business.
