Statement on disclosure of ESG matters by issuers
02/07/2019 Since 2 years
The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), an international body that brings together the regulators of the securities markets of the world, published on January 18 a statement underlying the importance for issuers of considering the inclusion of environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters when disclosing information material to investors’ decisions. This statement is in line with IOSCO Principle 16 that states that issuers should provide “full, accurate, and timely disclosure of financial results, risk, and other information which is material to investors’ decisions.” With regard to this Principle, IOSCO emphasizes that ESG matters, though sometimes characterized as non-financial, may have a material short-term and long-term impact on the business operations of the issuers as well as on risks and returns for investors and their investment and voting decisions.
