Submitted By Will Harwood
Shareholder analysis of 24 companies finds energy producers Ð with BP, Exxon Mobil and Occidental at the bottom - failing to adequately report efforts to reduce environmental and community impacts.
The oil & gas production industry is consistently failing to report measurable reductions of its impacts on communities and the environment from hydraulic fracturing operations, according to a scorecard report released today by As You Sow, Boston Common Asset Management, Green Century Capital Management (Green Century), and the Investor Environmental Health Network (IEHN).
Available online at disclosingthefacts.org, the report, Disclosing the Facts: Transparency and Risk in Hydraulic Fracturing Operations, benchmarks 24 companies engaged in hydraulic fracturing against investor needs for disclosure of operational impacts and mitigation efforts.
