KPMG International Corporate Responsibility Reporting Survey 2011 

The KPMG International Corporate Responsibility Reporting Survey 2011 represents the largest and most comprehensive survey of Corporate Responsibility (CR) reporting trends ever published. 3,400 companies representing the national leaders from 34 countries around the world, including the 250 largest global companies, were included in our research.

Since we published our first report in 1993, the KPMG International Corporate Responsibility Reporting Surveys have provided the definitive snapshot of the evolving state of CR reporting and continues to deliver unprecedented insight into national, global and industry reporting trends.

The number of companies now reporting on CR has continued to rise since KPMG's last CR study in 2008. Indeed, where CR reporting was once merely considered an 'optional but nice' activity, it now appears to have become virtually mandatory for most multinational companies, almost regardless of where they operate around the world.

The following represents key findings from the study:

It seems clear, therefore, that companies not yet reporting on their CR activities are under significant pressure to start. This will be increasingly critical; not only to stay competitive in a societal context, but also to gain a better understanding of how CR activities affect and benefit the business in areas such as cost savings and new business opportunities and strengthen the core strategy.
