– Leveraging collective awareness to understand companies’ environmental, social and governance performance

WikiRate is a Collective Awareness Platform for Sustainability and Social Innovation (CAPS) project with the aim of “crowdsourcing better companies” through analysis of their Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) performance, (...) WikiRate aims to build an open repository for this data along with tools for analysis, to increase public demand for the data, allow a broader range of stakeholders to participate in its interpretation, and in turn drive companies to behave in a more ethical manner. This paper describes the quantitative Metrics system that has been designed to meet those objectives and some early examples of its use.
