The KPMG Survey of Corporate Responsibility Reporting provides a snapshot of current global trends in corporate responsibility (CR) reporting. The survey covers 4,100 companies in 41 countries and offers a deep-dive into the quality of reporting among the world’s largest 250 companies.
The 2013 report marks 20 years since KPMG's first survey on CR reporting was published, which covered just 10 countries. The growth in the number of countries and companies covered in this survey is just one indication of how CR reporting has evolved into a mainstream business practice over the last two decades.
KPMG's survey is published primarily for business leaders, company boards and CR and sustainability professionals.
The first part of the survey looks at the 100 largest companies by revenue in 41 countries, exploring how many companies are producing CR reports and other issues, such as the drivers for reporting, sector variances, and the use of standards and assurance for CR reports.
The second part of the survey looks specifically at the world's largest 250 companies. It assesses the quality of their CR reports, identifies leaders and uses these examples to offer guidance and insights.
This online tool allows you to compare a) the rate of CR reporting by country, region and sector b) the rate of assurance of CR reports by country and region c) the average quality score of the CR reports of the world’s largest 250 companies by sector.
* The rate of reporting and assurance is provided for the 100 largest companies in each of the 41 countries surveyed in 2013.
