The CSR Online Awards is Europe’s first and most authoritative research into how companies communicate and engage on sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) online. Our evaluation criteria are based on the input of over 1,850 international sustainability experts and CSR professionals, and take into account the expertise we’ve gained from having ranked thousands of corporate digital channels, from websites to social media.
This digital specialisation allows us to stay at the forefront of sustainability and to grasp the trends that will define the relationship between company and society at large. In this white paper, we present the state of the art of sustainability in Europe, pick out winning digital approaches and identify the companies that are cutting-edge sustainability communicators.

As the importance of transparency on financial performance, corporate governance and sustainability continues to intensify, there is a clear need for banks to invest more heavily in digital corporate and sustainable communications in order to maintain a strong positive presence.
