Perfect Information, the global provider of financial information, today announced that it is making available sustainability (Corporate Social Responsibility â CSR) reports on its PI: Filings database. Most of the worldâs largest corporations have voluntarily produced environmental and sustainability reports to assure stakeholders, employees, investors and customers of their environmental and ethical business practices. These documents are collated by Perfect Information under its Annual Report documents database and then made available through PI: Filings, PIâs global database comprising over seven million company filings.
âInvestors are beginning to take corporate social responsibility and socially responsible investment much more seriously nowâ, said Brian Harrison Spence, Founder, economie. âIt is imperative that the information released by companies about their environmental and ethical codes of practice is easily accessible. The fact that companies, such as Perfect Information are making this information easily available, further pushes corporate social responsibility into the mainstream, helping to shape the advancement of an ethically aware global economy.â
PI: Filings currently holds nearly 700 Sustainability Reports, including all 300 constituents of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
âCSR is becoming a significant part of the financial world and it is shaping the decisions people make. Moreover, it is vital that financial institutions are armed with the information they need in order to act quickly on behalf of their customers. Currently, the market share for ethical investment in the UK is only around 2-3%. However, this is set to rise and mirror the US, where the market share is three times greaterâ, said Greg Simidian, Managing Director, Perfect Information.
âMore and more companies are beginning to realise the importance of producing voluntary sustainability reports and our repository is growing accordingly. We are constantly striving to help our customers save time and provide them with well-indexed, reliable data from which they can make fast, well-informed choices.
