Corporate Social Responsibility Review V.7 2018-01-04 20:19:19

Corporate Social Responsibility & Governance Accountability Review

 

This is the release of CPRI’s research on corporate social responsibility & governance accountability review, with a focus on human rights, executive pay and (dis)qualification of board directors.  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 these companies (1 in Japan, 6 in China and the rest in the U.S.) based on my personal knowledge and field study since as early as 1992 when I started to work in Japan.  The hundreds documents/articles in English and Chinese in the foot notes extensively show how I reach to conclusion for each company’s CSR.  Being a trained Sociologist on social research, I am fully aware of the methodology constrain of this project.  Nonetheless, it provides an alternative perspective among so many reviews on how to gauge corporate social responsibility in the age of globalization, which has greatly been driven by these international companies under review.

 

A: 80-100, leader

B: 60-80, good citizen

C: 40-60, average effort

D: 20-40, concerned, need improvement

F: 0-20, failure, unethical, unlawful
