I’ve always been clumsy. There were many broken dishes and glasses in my childhood. My Mom was always kind about it. She’d say, “Tears don’t mend broken China.” She had other similar phrases I remember (e.g., “If you get a load of lemons, it is time to make lemonade!”), but the lesson was always Midwestern positivism. Don’t sit around moaning about what can’t be fixed—keep moving forward and don’t let your own failures hold you back.
We are thankful for all the hard work to advance CSR and sustainability this year. In gratitude, CSRHub will give you 10% off an annual plan AND give TEN students a free subscription for their academic research… from now until 12/31. We are calling this our One for Ten for CSR.
Just Capital was established in 2015 by two successful and well-known investors: Paul Tudor Jones and Martin Whittaker. Its mission is to use “the power of markets to drive positive change on the issues Americans care most about.” After two years of research and reflection, Just Capital has now published a list of the 100 best “corporate citizens.”
We’ve been interested in this project from its inception and provided the Just Capital research team with access to our ratings and other data. Unlike other ratings systems that attempt to decide what things are good behavior or bad behavior, Just Capital sought the opinion of ordinary citizens about what defines good corporate citizenship. When they released the first readings from these surveys last year, it caused a stir within the sustainability community by showing that social and ethics issues were more important to most Americans than environment or other governance issues.
We suspected that Just Capital’s approach would generate ratings that differ from those of the other 491 ratings sources we integrate into CSRHub’s data set. A simple comparison between the top 100 company ratings and CSRHub’s ratings shows there is about an 8% R Squared between Just Capital’s perspective on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and that of CSRHub’s aggregate of all other sustainability rating sources.

The catchphrase of 2014/2015 was, and is, big data- data sets that are so vast and complex that they need intensive resources to process. But what is the point of data if we cannot process it, analyze it, and effectively communicate it to our stakeholders?
