    5 : 5 PFS Program Survey – Reporting on CSR General Observations - I Trends have almost always been consistently and incrementally positive, although occasional slight decreases in disclosure have been observed. In general, companies provide more information on corporate governance than on the other two areas surveyed, namely social policy and environmental policy. Corporate Governance Codes have an impact on disclosure. Best Performers are generally companies in markets that have implemented a corporate governance code, namely Hungary, Poland and Slovenia. On September 15, 2006 nine Slovene, eight Polish, six Czech and six Hungarian companies disclose implementation of a corporate governance code in their annual report. However, individual companies in other countries are also implementing best practice. However, there are many other drivers, including: competitiveness, EU accession, the EU transparency directive, globalization, growing use of “standardized” methodologies for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting (GRI, ISO, et al), implementation of IFRS, local consciousness of particular issues (environmental awareness), information demands of domestic and foreign portfolio investors presence of a strategic investor, risk management and others.
    6 : 6 PFS Program Survey – Reporting on CSR General Observations - II Not surprisingly, results for the eight new member states of the EU are better in every category than for the 11 CEE Countries (Eight New Member States of the EU, Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania). Despite the significant and continuous improvements in disclosure that appear to be sustainable, blue chips in the 11 CEE countries underperform their peers in terms of reporting in the English language on ESG. On September 14, 2006 15 of the 110 CEE companies surveyed (14%) have an English-language stand alone ESG report available online. On April 15, 2006 the number was 14 (13%). Three companies in Croatia, two in Czech Republic, one in Estonia, four in Hungary, two in Poland, two in Slovenia and one in Slovakia publish an English-language stand-alone ESG report. In comparison: On April 15, 2006 seven Spanish companies and six Portuguese companies published stand alone ESG reports. On September 15, 2006 five Brazilian companies and four Russian companies publish stand-alone ESG reports.

    14 : 14 About the Partners for Financial Stability (PFS) Program The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) established the Partners for Financial Stability (PFS) Program in 1999 as a public-private partnership to help complete reforms necessary to create sound, private and well-functioning financial sectors in the eight Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) countries that have since joined the European Union. In 2005, the geographical focus of the program shifted to Southeast Europe (SEE).   East-West Management Institute (EWMI), a New York-based not-for-profit organization, is currently the primary implementing partner.   The PFS Program is mandated to fill remaining gaps in the institutional development of the financial sector in SEE countries through regional integration and cooperation, selective technical assistance programs and the practical application of lessons learned in neighboring countries. The substantive areas covered under the PFS Program are: accounting, auditing, banking, capital markets, insurance and pension reform.
