WASHINGTON — A new report by a New York-based foundation representing faith-based institutional investors is faulting some investor-owned water utilities for failing to provide key non-financial disclosures, though the report gives high marks to two publicly owned utilities.

In a 71-page report released Wednesday, the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility urges water utilities to provide better environmental, social, and governance disclosures to investors. It also calls for the creation of an international, Web-based “data commons” for such disclosures, based on a “benchmarking network” already established by the World Bank but that is currently only used in the developing world.
