About Us: CSRHub is a web based business intelligence service which gives our users access to the CSR (corporate social responsibility) and sustainability information they need to evaluate corporate values and social and environmental performance.
CSRHub gives its users access to 469 sources of CSR information. The CSRHub database aggregates information from large ESG (environmental, social, governance) research houses, publishers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), crowd sources, and government agencies. Using a proprietary system for mapping and normalizing this broad range of information, CSRHUB provides consistent ratings on 16,500 companies in 133 countries.
Our search system allows CSRHub users to find and compare the ratings of companies in different industries and countries. Corporate managers, professionals, academics, employees, researchers, activists, and API partners can use this information to make economic decisions, improve their company’s performance, look for jobs, feed apps, and make purchasing or supply chain decisions.
