The Green Canary (2005)
Alerting Shareholders and Protecting Their Investments
A company that effectively discloses its political spending builds trust among shareholders and financial analysts. A company that fails to disclose risks making political spending decisions that can lead to financial losses and a compromised corporate reputation. The Green Canary explores the risks posed to shareholders in the absence of disclosure, and presents two methods of evaluating corporate political activity. These methods can reveal possible management weaknesses before they damage shareholder value.
