The World’s Most Reputable Companies For Corporate Responsibility (CSR) In 2019

The saga of new compliances and penalties is going on with CSR in India. But a confluence of trends worldwide- growing pressure from investors and consumers for companies to have a positive Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) profile, new employee engagement opportunities built around pro-social actions and more suggests that companies should be embracing a more holistic approach to corporate social responsibility.

Since 2011, RI has published the CR RepTrak, an annual study of companies with the best corporate responsibility reputations in the world. This year’s ranking revealed a 1.6-point increase, just enough to offset the average 1.4-point decline recorded in 2018.
