Data Access

At the heart of is our commitment to providing resources on CR reporting companies and their reports, including data on trends, assurance types, global standards, and other relevant topics.

Our site provides basic access to company and report profiles for our registered users through a Personal Account.

For those users who wish to take more advantage of our extensive resources, we offer Membership subscriptions.

Personal Account users are given a free Personal Account when they register, which offers access to basic resources on our site such as access to our smart searches, downloads, news and reviews.

Personal Account holders will receive a points quota measured on a ‘trafficator’ system, which changes from green to amber to red as you use the site. Engaging in the site, by voting in awards or surveys, or leaving meaningful comments on reports you have read, gives you more credit to enable continued use of the site. The account is not intended for intensive, systematic, or commercial use.

The Personal Account must be upgraded to a Membership Account for greater access to the site.

To sign up for your free Personal Account, simply visit to register.


Who can apply for Membership?

Membership is available at two levels:

a) Associate membership - for non-reporting organisations, service providers and academics.
b) Full membership - for reporting organisations.

Membership is on annual subscription.

What are the benefits of Membership?

All members have access to the following:

1) Advanced searches. Instead of the single search field available to non-members, (our 'smart search'), members can choose from many drop-downs, giving comprehensive, precise searches. For example members may search by company name, by sector or sub-sector, year, country and in any combination. There are several additional search fields including frameworks such as GRI and external assurance statements. Alternatively members may continue to use the 'smart search'.

2) Statistics. We have an extensive statistics section with over 150 individual charts illustrating the data in our database (growth over time, by country, sector, report types, assurance, use of frameworks...). Many of these charts are updated every few days. This content is unique and gives an overview of our directory of non-financial reporting over two decades.

3) PDF Search Tool. We index the content of our many tens of thousands of reports. You can search this content by an individual word or phrase - an invaluable research tool.

See illustrations and a breakdown of these benefits further explained by following this link.

In addition to these benefits, Full members have access to the following:

4) Full members will see a feed of new reports from their own sector - the best way to stay informed of what is happening amongst peers and competitors.

5) In addition to the many charts available to all members, Full members will have access to detailed charts and statistics for their own specific sector. These charts are not available anywhere else on the site.

6) Full members will benefit from discounts on our services, such as our standard package for ReportAlerts and news.

7) We are developing a series of 'CR Sector Overviews' - these are downloadable reports, focusing on sectoral material issues. Indispensable for sustainability & communications professionals!
