The Reputation Institute
The Reputation Institute measures the reputation of different companies and brands regarding the actions they take for sustainability; every year they release their Global CSR RepTrak 100, which highlights the companies that have the best reputations for corporate social responsibility among the general public in 15 countries.
The companies in the Global CSR RepTrak 100 are supposed to be making great and important efforts, not only to be good corporate citizens, but also to communicate those characteristics to consumers who are always relying on a brand’s reputation in making purchasing decisions and recommending products and services to others. The researchers released by the Institute reflect the public opinion and perception of corporate performance based on three main aspects: citizenship, workplace, and governance.
