Terms of Service
The CorporateRegister.com CR Report Directory is the world's largest online directory of corporate responsibility (CR) reports issued by companies and other organisations. ‘CR’ reports include many types of non-financial report, including sustainability, environmental and ‘integrated’ reports. The directory is continually updated with new reports and companies.
We offer access to the very latest reports as they are published, and provide an archive of reports for each company featured. This is achieved through a combination of our own research and contact with companies.
Information is displayed in company profiles and report profiles. Report profiles can display information on the hard copy reports, online websites and/or provide direct access to the PDF version.
Signed up users can search the directory using our ‘smart search’ tool with their free Personal Account. Users upgrading to a Membership Account can take full advantage of this unique resource with several advanced search options, enabling them to search for specific individual or combined criteria.
With thousands of companies producing CR reports each year, stakeholders need a single reliable source to access new reports, and an archive of previous editions.
Similarly, reporting companies who have invested in their reporting progammes need to communicate with a well-informed global stakeholder audience. By providing access to thousands of these reports free of charge, we have that audience.
Other CR report directories exist, but our archive is many times larger than any similar service.
We aim to include every relevant published CR report, without limitations of country or company size and across all sectors, public and private. We actively research new reports where they are not provided directly by the reporting company.
We will attempt to contact the companies we feature to request the most up to date information. In the absence of any contact we will maintain a company’s free reporting profile through our independent, periodic research.
We have had to take a view on what types of publications to include on the site. We feature reports and reviews – not brochures, marketing and related publications. We do not feature publications which are sales material, have no reference year, no quantitative CR data and no statement of CR policy.
Some of our featured report profiles include sections from Annual Reports. These sections need to comprise at least 6 pages.
If you have a relevant report that we have missed, please inform us (see Sending us Reports).
We identify a number of international reporting guidelines & standards in the CR report directory. You can search for users of these standards through the 'advanced reports search':
Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)
The GRI guidelines are designed to assist organisations in disclosing their sustainability performance. A prerequisite for any report achieving GRI adherence is the inclusion of a 'Content Index' i.e. an index mapping responses to some or all of the GRI reporting indicators.
There are several versions of the GRI guidelines, G3.1, G3 and 2002, each with its own coding system described here.
AccountAbility AA1000 Assurance Standard
The AA1000 Assurance Standard (AA1000AS) forms part of the AA1000 Series, principles-based standards for improving the sustainability performance of reporting organisations.
There are two versions of the AA1000AS:
AA1000AS (2008) - definition
AA1000AS (2003) - definition
Global Compact (GC)
The Global Compact is a United Nations initiative, working to advance ten universal principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
We track CR/Sustainability reports incorporating an index (i.e. 'GC Index') for the cross-referencing of each of the Global Compact 'ten principles' to the reporting organisation's response in the report. A table or list simply stating the principles without relating them to report content is not sufficient.
Where "(Web Index)" is stated, the index is not available in the version of the report we feature, but is located on the reporting organisation's website.

Our independent research is very extensive, and we may have already located and included your report. Please check our CR Report Directory to check if you already have a listing (sign in from the homepage to activate the search). If we have missed your publications and you would like your report or reports included on this site, we will need the following from you:
We host PDFs of featured reports: please help us access these files (by providing a URL, or sending the PDFs on CD or by e-mail).
We provide direct links to HTML reports for PriorityReporters only. Please contact us if you have an HTML report format and would like it added to your profile.
Who should be contacted to obtain copies of your reports? You might want to send us details of several contacts for different countries/languages. We need name, job title, postal address, telephone and fax, e-mail.
In which languages is your report available? If you publish in several languages, we use the English version, giving details of the others. If your report is unavailable in English we will still include it providing it is written in a latin script.
If it is not evident in the report, it would be helpful if you would inform us of the external consultants/designers/printers/third party statement organisations involved in helping develop your report (name of organisation, brief contact details).
Contact us to update information from your current or earlier reports - for example if some language versions are out of print, or if company details need updating etc.
Please send the reports and information to:
