Holding companies to account
In 2015, the UN published the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
They are comprised of 17 individual targets spanning a wide range of topics from poverty and inequality to climate change and biodiversity.
The Responsibility100 Index, developed by Tortoise Intelligence, has been established to examine how much each of the FTSE 100 companies are doing to ensure a safe, fair and sustainable world.
It is possible to sort the results by a company’s ‘Talk’ score – the extent of their commitment – or their ‘Walk’ score – the extent of their actions. The ‘Gap’ measures the distance between these two scores. The rankings are as follow:
The Responsibility100 Index uses data from a range of sources; including non-governmental organisation research, annual and sustainability reporting, web-based searching and information from regulatory bodies.
The indicators that comprise the Index have been selected with the aims of:
- Reflecting publicly-available information rather than proprietary sources
- Speaking to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and the various targets that it sets
- Providing a comprehensive portrait of each company according to the available data in order to establish comparability
