Capital-market Effects Of Corporate Disclosures...


We conclude based on reviewing the extant literature that CSR reporting standards have the potential to improve information to investors and other stakeholders. The magnitude of the capital-market effects from a CSR reporting mandate depends, among other things, on the extent to which firms currently withhold material CSR information that, in principle, represents required disclosure under existing securities laws (e.g., Regulation S-K or Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act). If firms largely comply with extant regulations, then CSR standards should not produce much new information for investors and the primary benefits must come from standardization, benchmarking, and cost savings.

Update: Mandatory CSR and Sustainability Reporting: Economic Analysis and Literature ReviewDate Posted:Wed, 21 Jul 2021 02:57:55 -0500This study collates potential economic effects of mandated disclosure and reporting standards for corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability topics. We first outline key features of CSR reporting. Next, we draw on relevant academic literatures in accounting, finance, economics, and management to discuss and evaluate the potential economic consequences of a requirement for sustainability reporting for U.S. firms, including effects in capital markets, on stakeholders other than investors and on firm behavior. We also discuss issues related to the implementation and enforcement of CSR and sustainability reporting standards as well as two approaches to sustainability reporting that differ in their overarching goals and materiality standards. Our analysis yields a number of insights that are relevant for the current debate on mandatory CSR and sustainability reporting. It also points scholars to avenues for future research.New PDF Uploaded

REVISION: Adoption of CSR and Sustainability Reporting Standards: Economic Analysis and ReviewDate Posted:Fri, 09 Aug 2019 08:30:43 -0500This study provides an economic analysis of the determinants and consequences of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability reporting. To frame our analysis, we consider a widespread mandatory adoption of CSR reporting standards in the United States. The study focuses on the economic effects of standards for disclosure and reporting, not on the effects of CSR activities and policies themselves. It draws on an extensive review of the relevant academic (CSR and non-CSR) literatures in accounting, economics, finance, and management. Based on a discussion of the fundamental economic forces at play and the key features and determinants of (voluntary) CSR reporting, we derive and evaluate possible economic consequences, including capital-market effects for select stakeholders as well as potential firm responses and real effects in firm behavior. We also highlight issues related to the implementation and enforcement of CSR reporting standards. Our analysis yields a number of ...
