Sustainability reporting: the missing piece in the efficiency puzzle

The following article was recently published by Greenstone's client Sustainable Homes.

This has started to change in the last few decades due to growing concerns around environmental and social impacts of businesses. An increasing number of investors now demand data on environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance just as they would request key financial information. [1, 2]
