ESG standards staring to consolidate

ESG standards are many and varied, confusing public and professionals alike – a point that has been made by several commentators, including this one.

The Financial Times has now reported that US group Just Capital is to start using metrics devised by the Coalition for Inclusive Capitalism in its rankings, in what may be the start of a consolidation of the disparate initiatives.

The combined metrics will initially focus on improving disclosure of workforce issues such as diversity policies. The metrics have been born out of the Embankment Project on Inclusive Capitalism – a project jointly conducted by the Coalition for Inclusive Capitalism and EY on long-term value and bringing together over 30 companies and investors, representing almost $30tr of assets under management.
