"Over recent years, investment managers (represented by the FSC) and asset-owners (represented by ACSI ) have grown in sophistication in their recognition of the critical importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors to the long-term performance of the companies in which they invest. While the drivers of this trend are many and varied, there is no question that ESG issues will invariably impact the ability of companies and their investors to achieve sustainable growth and prosperity into the future. Thus far, institutional investors and companies have struggled to find common ground in defining the ways ESG factors influence their shared goals to achieve sustainable long-term growth and prosperity. Likewise, there has been relatively little shared understanding of how to report on those factors, and how to reconcile them with financial metrics that have traditionally dominated company reporting and investment analysis processes. The Guide has been prepared to fill precisely that gap." (from Introduction)
