What is it about?

The Dow 30 represent leading companies in the United States. We show that these companies generally disclose environmental, social, and governance related information when that information is required by regulation, expected by investors, or relates to high-profile events. We also show that these disclosures tend to focus on economic issues rather than climate change or labor-related issues.

Our findings imply U.S. companies are generally not transparent in how they address these issues unless that transparency is economically relevant or required for regulatory compliance.
