Currents of change – The KPMG Survey of Corporate Responsibility Reporting 2015

This survey is based on several months of research by professionals at KPMG member firms around the world who analyzed thousands of company annual financial reports, corporate responsibility (CR) reports, and websites.

The study is presented in three parts:

  •  Part 1: Accounting for carbon: a report card
  •  Part 2: Quality of CR reporting among the G250
  •  Part 3: Global trends in CR reporting

In Parts 1 and 2, KPMG assessed the quality of CR reporting from the world’s 250 largest companies by revenue (G250) with a particular focus on the carbon information these companies publish in their annual financial and/or CR reports. Quality was assessed using scoring methodologies based on KPMG professionals’ view of leading reporting practices. In Part 3, the study presents global CR reporting trends based on reports issued by the top 100 companies in each of the 45 countries.
