About Membership

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, or those planning to report.

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 the 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 etc.) 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 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 benefits from discounts on our services.

7) We are developing a series of 'CR Sector Overviews' - these are downloadable reports, focusing on sectoral material issues. Indispensable for sustainability & communications professionals! Members have access to the report for their own sector. We will be developing reports for all major business sectors.
