Our inaugural Social Transformation Baseline Assessment looks at what 1,000 of the world’s most influential companies are doing to contribute to the social transformation of our global system – a transformation we desperately need in order to eradicate poverty in all its forms, end discrimination and exclusion, and reduce the inequalities and vulnerabilities that leave people behind.
Our assessment scores these companies on 18 core social indicators. These indicators signpost high-level societal expectations of businesses; for example, the expectation that companies pay their workers a living wage or provide healthy and safe workplaces.
Our report presents five key findings that show the gap that companies need to close in order to demonstrate they are contributing to just and equitable societies. It also features good practice examples that demonstrate what is possible when companies respect human rights, provide and promote decent work and act ethically.Download report
