The 2021 Benchmark ESG® Survey: Investor Attitudes on Company ESG Data

Determining Why and How Companies Should Collect, Use, and Report Investment Grade ESG Data

Benchmark’s sweeping survey of investment decision-makers sought to identify the kinks in the ESG information pipeline that connects reporting entities with the investors for whom their ESG performance reports are intended.
This survey, through a series of multiple-choice, rating-scale, and open-ended questions, was conducted to ascertain investors’ perspectives regarding:
  • The importance of useful and reliable company ESG performance data
  • The quality of the ESG performance data that companies report
  • Where company ESG performance data needs improvement
  • The causes of the shortcomings in companies’ self-reported ESG performance data
  • How business leaders might produce and report the investment-grade ESG performance data that investors increasingly expect
