CSRHub’s mission is to foster access to sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) information. CSRHub provides access to corporate social responsibility and sustainability ratings and information on 19,000+ companies from 134 industries in 143 countries.
CSRHub aims to determine the consensus opinion on the perception of a company’s ESG performance. CSRHub rates 12 indicators of employee, environment, community, and governance performance and flags many special issues. They offer access to 250 million detailed data points from 691 data sources. The data comes from socially responsible investing research firms, well-known indexes, publications, “best of” or “worst of” lists, NGOs, crowd sources, and government agencies. CSRHub aggregates and normalizes the information from these sources, creating a consistent rating system and a searchable database that links each rating point back to its source. CSRHub only offers an overall rating for a company when CSRHub has sufficient sources and information to do so.
