Market Interest in Nonfinancial Information

by R. G. Eccles, Michael P. Krzus and George Serafeim

Abstract

Market interest in nonfinancial (e.g., Environmental, Social, and Governance [ESG]) information, including data produced by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), is growing. Using data from Bloomberg we analyze this interest from a variety of different perspectives, and in doing so are able to provide a level of granularity about market interest in nonfinancial information that has not yet been provided.

Keywords: Markets; Data and Data Sets; Perspective; Environmental Sustainability; Social Issues; Corporate Disclosure; Projects; Interests;
