6th CSR Online Awards 2014

The research reveals how the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability is undergoing a profound shift that is re-shaping the company-stakeholder relationship. The penetration of digital and social channels into daily, working routines has reached a tipping point in terms of how people access corporate information and engage over environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

 

The study was based on an evaluation protocol developed with input from 350 CSR experts and sustainability professionals and organised into seven pillars: Concrete, Exhaustive, User friendly, Ongoing, Social, Integrated and Distinctive. Lundquist analysts assessed the website and associated digital channels of about 270 European companies.

 

Our White Paper presents all our research findings as well as full rankings for the following lists:

  • Germany’s 30 top companies (updated March 2015)
  • Switzerland’s 50 major listed and non-listed firms (updated 27 October 2014)
  • Europe’s top 100 companies where top performers were Deutsche Post DHL (73 points out of 100), Nestlé (67.75) and Unilever (66.25).
  • Nordic region’s 40 leading companies, with leading positions taken by Ericsson (48 points), Novo Nordisk (46.5) and ASSA ABLOY (45.25)
  • Italy’s 100 biggest listed and privately held companies, won by Telecom Italia (65.5) followed by Gruppo Hera (62.75) and Snam (61)

Getting left behind? CSR communications in Switzerland undermined by low transparency

The performance of Swiss companies in the 7th edition of the CSR Online Awards is undermined by a lack of transparency, an issue that has not improved since our previous edition of the research two years ago.

 

The top of the ranking of 57 leading Swiss companies – published today in association with Bilanz magazine – remains little changed from the past. Nestlé maintains its dominance in the top spot (63.5 points), comfortably beating Roche (55.25) and Credit Suisse (52.5) into 2nd and 3rd place respectively. But the wider picture is marred by the fact that a majority of the companies we studied don’t meet basic levels of non-financial transparency on environmental, social and governance topics, either online or in formal reports.

Deadline for Webranking evaluations set for Aug. 31

On Thursday August 31st we will be closing the 2017-2018 edition of Webranking for the year, the annual ranking measuring the quality of online financial and corporate communications. The Italian, Swiss, and Austrian editions of Webranking by Comprend are carried out and coordinated by Lundquist.

 

This is the last call for companies to notify us of any significant changes made to their websites during the month of August, by sending us, via e-mail, a list of links to the pages that have been altered.
