Gem of the day

What is there really to say about a transparency index which manages to place BP in 6th and De Beers in 8th?

The authors of the index claim that it is "the only ranking of corporate sustainability performance website transparency in the world which is completely applicable across sectors, industries and geographies, enabling a true comparison of corporate commitment to transparency."

Oh so that's the problem--this index is based on CR reporting alone, and focuses exclusively on quantity of information, not quality.

Even so, it's tough to understand how a company like BP, which failed to report even estimates of the Gulf oil spill last year, could achieve this kind of success on a transparency ranking.
