A step change in attitudes, a step change in disclosure

Stakeholder expectations on climate change action are only going to increase. Right now, there is an opportunity to use the newly-raised bar to drive improvement in disclosures.

In 2021, COP26 and the accompanying media circus was the culmination of a year that saw greater scrutiny and higher expectations of companies in relation to climate change and climate action. Especially when it comes to disclosure.

We included a special commentary in Equiniti’s December Proxy Governance Update on this important step change toward climate disclosure, drawing on our extensive research of FTSE 350 and AIM corporate reporting to provide an overview of the important trends.

Alongside a breakdown of the key data that evidences a change in attitude, we set out the core principles for communication and six top tips for planning, smooth delivery and meaningful impact when it comes to climate change disclosure.

You can read the full piece on Equiniti’s website.

Emperor's first annual report

After 25 years as an independent agency, this report is an important milestone in improving our corporate and financial transparency. Not least, because in January 2020 we became an employee owned business and our annual report acts as a contract of trust between Emperor and our stakeholders.
