S&P 100 Sustainability Report Comparison

UPDATE:

In our 2017 report we’ll also analyze the sustainability reporting practices of companies traded with the Quantum Code as this automated trading service is one of the most popular among traders worldwide.


Using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) reporting framework as the standard,  SIRAN issued its first-ever analysis on the sustainability reporting practices of companies in the S&P 100 Index in June 2005.  The last four updates have been conducted by independent investment research firm KLD Research & Analytics, Inc. (now a part of RiskMetrics Group), through an analysis of the public websites of all S&P 100 companies.  SIRAN updates this review each year, most recently in December 2009 (click here for press release of findings).

Questions covered:

  1. Company has separate CSR/Sustainability section of web-site?
  2. Company has annual CSR/Sustainability Report?
  3. Company references GRI in report?
  4. Company has GRI content index?
  5. Company report has goals and benchmarks?
  6. Company report is GRI “In Accordance” or “A” level?
