The 2013 report marks 20 years since KPMG's first survey on CR reporting was published, which covered just 10 countries. The growth in the number of countries and companies covered in this survey is just one indication of how CR reporting has evolved into a mainstream business practice over the last two decades.
KPMG's survey is published primarily for business leaders, company boards and CR and sustainability professionals.
The first part of the survey looks at the 100 largest companies by revenue in 41 countries, exploring how many companies are producing CR reports and other issues, such as the drivers for reporting, sector variances, and the use of standards and assurance for CR reports.
The second part of the survey looks specifically at the world's largest 250 companies. It assesses the quality of their CR reports, identifies leaders and uses these examples to offer guidance and insights.
