Draft methodology for assessing a social transformation

Download report

We are happy to publish the social transformation draft methodology. It outlines the draft indicators that will be used to assess the 2,000 most influential companies globally on 15 core social topics. These include living wages, corporate taxation, lobbying, core labour standards and respect for human rights.

A social lens will be applied to the 2,000 most influential companies globally

Just as the SDGs place people first, WBA’s social transformation aims to put people at the heart of change so that no one is left behind. Accordingly, WBA proposes a framework that will assess the 2,000 keystone companies against a common set of core social expectations that all companies must meet as well as their contribution to the relevant social aspects of the system transformation it falls within.

We kindly invite you to give your feedback by 7 September

“The coronavirus pandemic has underscored the need for strong social protections for workers. Now more than ever, companies should be held accountable for their role in society and encouraged to play their part in the needed transformations.”
