Additionally, shareholders are becoming more assertive in getting companies to lessen their reliance on fossil fuels. A month before the SEC’s moves, the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) published ESG Reporting and Attestation: A Roadmap for Audit Practitioners to help auditors guide clients in how they should approach ESG disclosures. During a virtual session Monday, Kristen Sullivan, CPA, CGMA, a partner with Deloitte & Touche LLP and the firm’s Americas region sustainability services leader, gave an overview of the concerns public companies, directors, and auditors have about the new regulatory focus on ESG disclosures. To date, ESG disclosures have tended to be separate from regulatory filings. But the CAQ’s road map is meant to help guide capital market participants through the frequency and consistency of the disclosures and whether the information is comparable from company to company, Sullivan said. “All are much more in the spotlight as the growing attention to ESG disclosure continues to intensify,” said Sullivan, who also chairs the AICPA Auditing Standards Board’s Sustainability Task Force. The developments regarding ESG disclosures are also presenting auditors with a new host of responsibilities. “We’re seeing a conversation around the role and the value of assurance provided by independent auditors,” Sullivan said. Typically, new rules and regulations impose an unwelcome burden on financial reporting professionals and their auditors. But the trend toward ESG reporting comes with a twist — the demands for the information have been coming from so many different corners of the market that the development of new standards and reporting regulations may simplify life for CFOs, corporate controllers, and audit committee members. “Companies are being inundated because there are no standards in terms of reporting and disclosure,” said Margaret Smyth, CPA, CGMA, the CFO for National Grid USA Services Co. Inc. “It would be really good to have some guidelines, standards. It would reduce the amount of information requests. It would also promote consistency among the disclosures people are making.” The groups pushing for more ESG information have responded to the market’s demands for a more standardized regime and begun to coordinate their efforts. For example, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) is scheduled to complete its merger with the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) at the end of May. Last December, the SASB and IIRC teamed up with CDP, the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB), and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to issue a prototype climate-related financial disclosure standard.https://www.journalofaccountancy.com/news/2021/may/esg-attestation-increased-demand.html

Put all this together and it seems clear that governments’ actions did indeed get people to stay at home, with costly consequences for the economy. But were the benefits worth the costs? Economic research on this question tries to resolve three uncertainties: over estimates of the costs of lockdowns; over their benefits; and, when weighing up the costs and benefits, over how to put a price on life—doing what Mr Cuomo refused to do. Start with the costs. The huge collateral damage of lockdowns is becoming clear. Global unemployment has spiked. Hundreds of millions of children have missed school, often for months. Families have been kept apart. And much of the damage is still to come. A recent paper by Francesco Bianchi, Giada Bianchi and Dongho Song suggests that the rise in American unemployment in 2020 will lead to 800,000 additional deaths over the next 15 years, a not inconsiderable share of American deaths from covid-19 that have been plausibly averted by lockdowns. A new paper published by America’s National Bureau of Economic Research ( ) expects that in poor countries, where the population is relatively young, the economic contraction associated with lockdowns could potentially lead to 1.76 children’s lives being lost for every covid-19 fatality averted, probably because wellbeing suffers as incomes decline. Research is more divided over the second uncertainty: the benefit of lockdowns, or the extent to which they reduce the spread of, and deaths from, covid-19. The fact that, time and again, the imposition of a lockdown in a country was followed a few weeks later by declining cases and deaths might appear to settle the debate. That said, another recent paper failed to find that countries or American states that were quick to implement shelter-in-place policies had fewer excess deaths than places which were slower to act. A paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a scientific journal, by Christopher Berry of the University of Chicago and colleagues, cannot find “effects of [shelter-in-place] policies on disease spread or deaths”, but does find “small, delayed effects on unemployment”. Running through all this is the final uncertainty, over putting a price on life.https://www.economist.com/finance-and-economics/2021/07/01/how-to-assess-the-costs-and-benefits-of-lockdowns
