The number of American companies reporting on environmental, social and sustainability performance continues to rise, reflecting a global trend toward greater reporting of corporate responsibility issues, according to KPMG LLP. Every three years since 1993, KPMG's Global Sustainability Services, collaborating with the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, has conducted a survey of corporate non-financial reporting. The current survey was conducted between November 2001 and February 2002 by KPMG GSS practices in 19 countries in conjunction with the University of Amsterdam. Among its findings, the survey noted that U.S. companies that issued reports in 2002 on environmental issues rose 14 percent from three years ago. More information:
