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.
