Corporate Social Responsibility Index (CSRI)
This is the first primary release of CPRI’s research on corporate social responsibility index with a focus on human rights. Many companies added environmental factor to their CSR reports but it is not comparable or fair among energy manufacturing and software companies and I noticed some companies inserting this factor to dilute social concerns. At this stage I include 33 companies (1 in Japan 6 in China and the rest in the U.S.) based on my personal knowledge and study on them. The foot notes briefly indicate how I come to conclusion for each company’s CSRI. I am fully aware of the methodology constrain of this project (being a Ph. D on social research methodology) and I will improve in next releases. Nonetheless it provides an alternative perspective among so many proposals or indexes on how to gauge corporate social responsibility in the time of globalization driven mainly by large international companies.
A: 80-100 leader
